One of my place to visit in Melbourne. How I wish I have more time to explore the library. It's so majestic from outside and even more impressive inside. There are ongoing exhibition inside too, so if you have extra time, do explore the area

Amazing collection of books and a great architecture! This place so much more organised for the tourist and book lovers. One can sit for hours and read peacefully. The collection on each and every topic is commendable.

For lovers of literature, lovers of design inspired spaces, solitude or - you just have some time on your hands, this is a great place to spend some time. If you need a spot to study - it's worth a try - particularly if you want to do some group work in a central location

I’ve spent a few days in the library; it’s always busy, but I have never failed to get a seat. Staff are helpful, security is visible but not intrusive and there is free WiFi. Fabulous building with a great layout right in the centre of town, with easy tram access.

The library is a fascinating tourist experience to visit. You need to enter the library and go to the upper level to view the historic library facilities from above. It is a well restored preservation of the historic facilities which encompass modern technology in the older traditional library structure. Brilliantly well done
