Large collection of books, graphic novels, magazines, cds and console games to borrow. Easy to join and borrow. Great seating and study areas with relaxation areas and a kitchenette. Plenty of digital music equipment to learn and play on. Free tram available to/from city centre.

Staying at docklands I took my grandsons to the library this morning. It was a great place for them to spend some time. The park next to the library is VERY cool too.

Since the beginning, I'm very impressed with this library & has been a favorite. I work a few blocks away which is so ideal because I could walk in during lunch break specifically. Unfortunately the location is way out from my residence. Small cafe on...More

This isn't a normal tourist but one I visited as a librarian. It's a bit out of the way and doesn't have the most welcoming facade. Great views, though. The first thing one encounters is a small cafe which looked quite good. The library extends...More
