This library is located close to the water and is separated into two parts - one old and one modern. Both are very interesting in their own ways. The older side includes a lovely little garden area with a fountain that is quite peaceful. The modern side is on the edge of the canal and includes lots of areas to... More

Simple and modern interior design, nice view of river, free wifi, clean toilet, quiet, peaceful, good looking people - what else can you ask for a resting place after few hours walking for sight-seeing in a freezing winter day outside?

Always a good place to hang out. You can either just drop by and grab a book to read in the quiet section, or you can subscribe for a free membership and take books with you. The place looks pretty nice, so if you're as nerdy as I am, you may even use it for dating.

This library is so cozy and inviting. Sometimes it felt like a book store in that it was so modern and clean. The cafe downstairs is a great place to hangout as well.

The new library looked a plain simple building from the outside, even though it was big. The terrace outside was ideal for refreshments and watching the boats go by, but inside the grandeur of a stylish modern functional building is worth a look. Escalators in a cavernous central section surrounded by walkways and glass study areas, take you from the... More

While it is a delightful place to sit outside and watch people and the water, but you must go into the rare book room and see a very surprising excellent display of rare books

You will be able to read latin books from say year 1,100 AC, feel the paper or cloth, read other topics that interests you.

Nice food, free water, air conditioned, excellent toilets and outside loungers for those who want to sit beside the canal and enjoy the sun. No dislikes!
