    turn off when own bags not allowed. too disappointed causing me to walk away and never return perhaps. should mentioned in the site or any website what are the rules and regulations. my mistake as i thought every state library will be the same. it's very inconvenient for us to carry all the notes, utensils, ipad,books,notebooks.

    parking wise there's space to park.

    by the way, I'm offended with the way staff insist on checking all the things in the bag, but ends up, can't bring it also. so, instead of checking the bag, just told from the start not allowed to bring unapproved bag.
    and thanks for the link. suggested should paste it on this map review too.
