“fantastic library!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I love just being in this space. There are a lot of cozy reading spots, tons of books, CDs, DVDs, information, and a great kids area. Also nice cafe upstairs. LOVE it!

“Well stocked and lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

A brilliant library - food, toilets, seats, space AS WELL AS several floors of extensive book stock, magazines, audio. This is a wonderful place to spend time, in a vibrant part of the city - and it has superb views for when you look up from the page. Highly recommended!

“books, food, people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Great library resources and always found staff helpful. Love having a catch up with friends in the cafe - morning tea or good fair priced meals. Have my favourite foods but you will have to choose your own or maybe I will go and they'll be sold out! Lots of spaces also to read or watch the world go about you. Really covers everything you could want from a resource centre - books and electronically

“Not just for reading”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I enjoy the cafe here as much as the library.
Over three floors of books and areas for study (quiet) or not so quiet.
The cafe's food is delicious and free wi-fi.
