This library is huge, with many floors of books. The best part is that the children section often hold many different workshops. The children section has comfortable chairs and an organised library system that makes it easier to search for desired books.

If you like libraries, you'll like this. Great selection of books. Clean, airy building. Recommendation for improvement: needs more seating.

So elegantly constructed, easy to move around with so clear directional signs. Millions of book to read and so much to learn. Really a nice place to study.

The National library is easily accessible, has lots of room and place to rest even if you aren’t there to read. Huge book selection, quiet enough as most people are considerate.

Yes, pretty much all tables have charging ports. Not sure about the lounge. However, the ever-helpful ladies at the counter will be able to guide you accordingly

You may have visited the library by now. There's a young children section at the basement. Wonderful to be able to watch them roam at a secured area with many age appropriate books.
