This library is huge, with many floors of books. The best part is that the children section often hold many different workshops. The children section has comfortable chairs and an organised library system that makes it easier to search for desired books.

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
