Here for the first time, we sit here just to wait the departure of the train. Good building and style (old) with sculptures and little gardens

This library has an amazing reading room with a wall of windows overlooking Kungsparken. They have lots of events with authors there as well.

There aren't so many areas to study that is quiet. The quiet room is pretty noisy as nothing is carpeted. It is a beautiful library though.

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.
