signature bridge, a glass link that overlooks downtown Atlanta, connects
the library’s two prominent buildings. Many  appreciate the comfort of
the library’s new interior design, often enjoying a coffee from the
cafe located on the first  floor.

Library services are supported by the Ex Libris Voyager integrated
