About the Downtown Library
The Downtown Library on Monument Square opened in 1979. In 2010, PPL completed Phase I of a major renovation that added new spaces for adult popular reading, technology services, cultural center activities (Lewis Gallery, Rines Auditorium, and meeting rooms), along with the new Sam L. Cohen Children’s Library and S. Donald Sussman Teen Library.
