As a tourist you are obviously not going to be taking out any books to read, but the architecture and interior design is a must see. The wood, the desks with the lamps.. all harken back to yrs gone by.

Nice place to visit if you are in the area. Not sure if I would go out of my way to get there.

Some of the reading rooms were closed on the day we visited, maybe that makes a difference.

This building is beautiful. It usually has a special exhibition and all are quite good. Even the shop is great.

There is so much to appreciate here, highly recommend taking the time to visit this library. The staff were all very friendly, more than happy to answer any questions.

My son and I visited the Library Thursday August 7th, 2014. It felt like a museum. There was an area dedicated to WWI which we spent around 20 minutes in and then an area with history of children's books which we spent around 30 minutes in. Then we went to the store. Our feet were getting tired so we went outside and sat on the steps watching all the people go by.
