  • Perth's latest best kept secret. The Perth City Library is conveniently located close to Hay Street Mall. I use it regularly for business meetings or for between meetings to do some work. There is even an outdoor deck in the sun to have work calls or to grab five minutes of zzzzz before your next meeting.
  • I love this library so much. It's really beautiful; the architecture, the balcony, the lighting, the children's area, the ceiling artwork and the staff. And I see people using all of the areas! I'm so proud that Perth has such a beautiful library.
  • Very good. A beautiful artistic library. Very friendly staff. Comfortable. Mobile printing service is good. Open air reading area on level 3 is good. A cafeteria would be even nicer. Plenty of study rooms. Close to trains and buses and shops. Opening hours are too short though. Would be ideal to be open from 8am to midnight everyday. I often find myself starting in the city library and when it closes, I walk over to the State Library to continue. More power points for people to connect their laptops would be good also. But these are just minor points. The library is great as it is now.
  • A great public place to get study done, if the blonde haired security guard that works there is not working. This man takes his job far too seriously & literally makes the point to have all your belongings destroyed if unattended for ANY amount of time, inturn this makes it hard to study for a decent length of time without having your belongings partially broken & removed.
  • It is 3-stars for the building (as a library) and 5-stars for the library content and the super-friendly staff from me. I liked the old library (even at the temporary location) better. Maybe I am old fashioned, but I prefer the 'everything on one-floor' set up most libraries still have all over Perth. Maybe it is because I do not come to the library with a 'shopping list' of things to borrow. I enjoy browsing the DVD section, the magazines, the non-fiction section, the children's section and the novels, picking up an interesting book or a magazine here, a kid's DVD there as I stroll around the shelves. I can't do that any more at the new City of Perth Library building, where each section is on a different floor. I find myself just going to one floor, getting something from there and leaving. The new library building is an artistic building and undoubtedly a landmark. But for all its architectural brilliance, the building feels more suitable for a reference library like the National Library - where one would come to read, or have a particular topic to research - than as a lending library. Having said that, it is possible that once I get used to the new layout, I just might find it more convenient and efficient than the old system.
