So elegantly constructed, easy to move around with so clear directional signs. Millions of book to read and so much to learn. Really a nice place to study.

The National library is easily accessible, has lots of room and place to rest even if you aren’t there to read. Huge book selection, quiet enough as most people are considerate.

Yes, pretty much all tables have charging ports. Not sure about the lounge. However, the ever-helpful ladies at the counter will be able to guide you accordingly
