Most visitors will be happy to see the treasures of the library; these are worth browsing for an hour or two and contain both historical treasures and books of beauty, such as illustrated religious scriptures of many faiths.
If you want to view a particular book beware that you need a reading pass which will require proof of identity and is only issued for short term reading rights, so do not expect to be be able to walk in and read a book as you would in a library in the usual sense we expect in this country. I wanted to see a local historic map of my town but was not armed with enough evidence of identity to do that on the visit, but seeing the treasures made up for the small appointment.
Also note that the "restaurant" is more of a cafe than a restaurant so while you can eat it is not a pleasure, although some of the seating is outside and on a nice day it is a pleasant place to have a cake and coffee.
