OK, I like libraries, ever since I got to visit them, but this is like the dream of a modern library (the other dream is the shady, old library that smells like old books). This is really designed to be a library and it looks...More

Wow! Such a beautiful library with much open space. I was especially impressed with the children's area as there were many interactive and fun features, such as carpeted play cubes.

Thanks for your feedback! Nice to hear that you liked our library. I'd like to add that you can use computers in the main library up to 4 hours/day and if you have your own device the use of wi-fi is limitless.

Very nice and attentive staff, perfect place to go with kids. Not too much books, but was just enough for me while writing thesis. Maybe could be more english books added. Otherwise, very enjoyable and nice place to go.

The library building itself is a nice example of modern Nordic architecture. Very simple exterior with large glass walls to create a feeling of space. The library itself is a very modern take on the classic service. It provides good service for all ages with...More
