  • 2nd home. Lol i spent my life studying here for 3 weeks before exams. nice place. Need to make their wifi faster though.
  • Love spending time here. Very cosy and comfortable. Very quiet. Huge collection of books. Friendly staff.
  • A great library! Airy and spacious, excellent selection of books, a good cafe attached, and overall a relaxing environment. They also sell off old books a couple of times a year.
  • Great place to hang out and read with Free Wifi (but careful it's not very good between 3 to 6)
  • Awesome place to hang out when nothing to do in wellington. Comfy seats and beanbags at the back downstairs
