Great place to find a book to read if the weather is bad and you have seen all the sights. Good little coffee shop inside also. Very friendly and helpful staff. They also have public computers, I believe, and free wifi.

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.

It was wonderful stumbling upon this beautiful old building literally right next to the train and bus station. We were able to stroll in and browse, and they have a great cafe for eating and reading.
