Not the same sort of beauty as the grand dame libraries in the US (this isn't the Boston library for example) but modern and striking. I love the enclosed green space (fifth floor?) with a view of the city. Green lush greenhouse sort of place...More

National Library doesn't necessarily mean exactly what it is, but they do have a very good collection, which is expanding all the time.

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
