Underrated place to read and study
Oct 2019 • Solo
With so many private nooks, it is an ideal place for anyone needing a place to study or read. Check out the 4th floor, as it is the most quiet and often vacant area. On nice days, the rooftop patio offers a unique view of the city center not found anywhere else.

A great center with library, cafe, cinema and cultural events
Jul 2019 • Family
A great center with library, cafe, cinema and cultural events. Widely used by city residents of all ages, but also tourists can enjoy a free day in the city's cultural hall. Stop by, sit down, browse a book or watch an exhibition - enjoy

Great place to focus and work
Nov 2018 • Solo
The fourth floor has large desks that are great to do most kinds of projects, and the users are more quiet than on other floors. There is also a newly opened cafe on the same floor.

Interesting modern building amongst the old
Sep 2018 • Couples
Friday 7th September and we were strolling around and sightseeing in Stavanger and we came across this building. In fairness it is not hard to miss it sticks out like a sore thumb, it is in complete contrast to the old wooden buildings that are around it.

This modern concrete building has the library on many floors, there is also a cinema, a gallery and places to eat and buy newspapers. It is definitely the cultural centre of Stravanger and appeared to be very popular with all ages

Would not say it was a tourist attraction but it worth a look, found it all a bit strange, not like a library that we are used to.

A real town square
May 2018 • Solo
The library and culture house of Stavanger is popular amongst young and old, and not to wonder. Its range of free activities, newspapers from all over the world, places to hang and discover books and magazines or just talk to friends, a wide range of music, board games and also guitars to let, in addition to several floors of books make this the welcoming heart of Stavanger. It is also here you find the city's cinema. If you are just passing by, it can be a good place to charge your feet and phone- lots of sockets, free wifi, small office cells to borrow for free also- without the claim of buying something. If you are staying in Stavanger for a while, make sure to pick up the season programme of events.

Multi-purpose Locale
Jul 2018 • Solo
This is not really a "tourist" sight but it is a very useful stop point in Stavanger. It contains cinemas, exhibits, a library, snack shop and restaurants (as well as free toilets on the lower levels). It has a pleasant, active atmosphere and is a great place to rest your feet and read a newpaper or magazine.

Good place to work, plenty of places to hide for focus, gets extra-quiet with special after-hours access
Mar 2018 • Solo
Very popular among students, offering many desks and seating groups. They do not allow food in, but there are many nearby places to get food. Make sure to get the after-hours contract, which you need to ask for specifically, if you already have a library card. The library card also grants access to download ebooks to your digital devices. The air inside the library can at times get stuffy, so make sure to take breaks in between to let your brain breathe. There are free-to-use wireless phone chargers for iPhone and Android on the desks, as well as power-outlets. The library also houses plenty of free events annually, such as free legal counseling, music lessons and more.

MAKE USE OF THE FREE TOILET FACILITIES - GREAT CINEMA

Unless you have a credit card or a ten Krone coin, make use of the toilet facilities here.
Superb library, excellent Odeon cinema (formerly SF Kino)

Amidst all the old wooden houses in the city, this concrete modern architecture stands right out in the middle of town. It's out to get your attention. It looked like that it's a local favorite in this building that houses the library, the cinema and cafes. It looked cold on the outside but it's very cozy inside. Stop and take a break after spending your time shopping nearby.
