  • The magazine section is good and the seating chairs are comfortable. You can sit for hours. Since I only browse English novel section,I can tell you their English novel collection is pretty bad. They don't have many new novels. You can use internet there for 10rs per hour. However the staff who stays there is rude. And lastly there's one guy who stays in the reception (where we have to write our names and details), he is also very rude. Bottom line is this is a great place to learn and read. However staffs I have encountered were unfriendly.
  • The best place to lose yourself in time.It has a good collection of books of various topics for reference as well as fiction novels.The children's section also very good
  • Pleasantly surprised to find a big library building in India. Have seen extremely good facilities in the U.K. The Goa library was interesting; also listened to a informative lecture by the curator. Would be helpful if more library staff are forthcoming generally. Good part; read a few books in peace.
  • One of the best places in Goa,with world class amenities. But the staff members are extremely rude.Especially the ones in the reference section.
  • This is my favourite place in Goa. It's very aimbient , relaxing world class and has all the best books with low membership fees as bonus. Rare to find similar libraries in India

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
