Libraries What you can do at Central Library

Read and study

Soft seating throughout the building means that you can curl up with a book or use your laptop in an environment that suits you. 

If you like a more formal study area, there's a Reading Room on the first floor which has seating for over 300 people.

More informal learning areas are dotted around the Library.  Explore and find your favourite spot!
