Brilliant place to see
Mar 2020 • Couples
This is a hidden gem and a shocker. A thing of such beauty and not publicized is something unpalatable. The library is divided into new lib and old lib. Old lib opens at 10:30am and is a hot to behold. The inside stained glasses, roof top decorations are brilliant. It is under renovation and you are not allowed to see inside. If the government were to charge 100 rupees for each visitor and tied up with tourist agencies, you will get all the money for conservation and maintenance. I would gladly donate more.
The wood work supporting each book shelf is exquisite and is unique in each design.

Go and see folks, and if possible petition the government to do better on this one.

The biggest library of Chennai
Aug 2019 • Friends
The library lies along with the Egmore museum. It has a wide collection of rare books and manuscripts. The Egmore museum gives us a vivid idea of the ancient Tamil history. It even has sculptures and carvings dating back to 150 BC.

Library within Government Museum
Jul 2019 • Solo
Through Connemara Public Library is in the same campus of Government Museum, no ticket is required to go inside. Good parking facility is available for 2 wheelers. You need to keep your bag outside in the designated area. Not a tourist place.

The new library might be good for reading but the old adjacent building is amazing. Would make a great movie set with the beautiful arches and stained glass windows with an amazing number of dusty paper items.

An abode for book lovers
Apr 2018
Connemara Public library is the source of inspiration for every citizen whatever may be his educational level. It has a huge stock of books almost in all Indian languages. If you are a layman without any special interest you can take any book of your choice and get trained as an expert in any subject you want. It has journals in all languages and you can send your time happily. You can also become a member by paying a small amount and take home books of your choice. If you are a student you should not fail to utilize this opportunity. If you are a teacher you should guide your students to use it.

Absolutely loved the ambience of the library and the vastness of the campus
It's adjacent to the museum and spellbindingly beautiful..
I didn't get to explore the books section all that much to be honest as I was more interested in soaking in the vibes..
Been to the permanent book fair and bought 2 books
