The graffiti along the side of the building doesn't help, but this is at best an average looking building. There's a small collection of books inside. Possibly one area which could be addressed in future aid projects.

Staff was helpful and although it isn't up to par with other National Libraries/Archives, management makes an effort to work on keeping it a good source of information for students and researchers.
