Industrial look, kind of what libraries used to look like 40 years ago. I guess that makes it a bit of a throw back! Free internet (I'm using it now) and plenty of seats around the edges.

When I studied in Wellington the library was really useful. Free internet for NZ sites, and cheap internet for full access. Good DVD and music hire selection too.

A great outing on a rainy day to visit the library. There is a JP onsite on certain days if you need anything signed which is a great service. Lovely cafe with a wide range of foods and excellent toilets
