I often book my more casual business meetings in the cafe on the first floor. It small and has a great feel to it and they serve authentic Norwgian sandwiches and lunches

I always visit libraries when travelling, and this is a very nice one. Very quiet, and tidy, as it's supposed to be. Very nice historical building as well.

Spacious, Quiet and peaceful environment. Fitted for reading and studying. An own room with chairs and sofas to read. Books are organized well, and its easy to find what you are looking for. Additionally, it's got a nice, little café at first floor.
