I loved walking around this beautiful city library. The outside is a combination of the original building and the newer addition. The inside was very modern and I loved exploring the children & teen areas.

Malmo library is full of light, books and activity. It has friendly and knowledgeable staff and a huge range of books in Swedish and other languages. It also has a nice cosy restaurant on the ground floor with a great menu and nice prices.

All the libraries I’ve visited in Scandinavia have been astoundingly beautiful (priorities are clearly different than in other counties). This one is no exception.

Wonderful library with helpful staff. Big area for kids to play and read. Ideal for study, work on laptop, reading, going with kids, eating in the café.

Beautiful architecture, a wonderful library that is popular with locals and tourists alike and a cafe that sells beer. What else could you ask for?
