The library is a modern building and is free to access and you can sit at the waterfront next to the library and pass your time. You also have access to free wi-fi if you are ever in need of it.

If you like libraries, you'll love this. It's modern, it's huge, and it has all you can ask from a building ike this. You can visit, work, study, take your kids for a fun read, and even have a coffee downstairs.

Beautiful modern interior design at a great harbor-front location, this sight is worth a stop especially if you need a little rest break for snacks, drinks, rest-rooms, free internet, general information or a quiet water-front reading/resting place.
