Close to the city, plenty of places to sit, and great internet to plan my next trip ;-) Just across the river from the Brisbane CBD. Great river views.

This is a great library in such a beautiful building with a wide range of books. You can use the Internet for a couple of hours, so it's handy for that too.

It was a very nice library. I was there for a work Conference. Great facilities. They had a fantastic children's area. Food was available for purchase outside the library in a bookshop/cafe.
