  • Just walk around and go Wow! It is a spectacular library built in the old fashion way, and there are many themes either on display or available to see.

  • Great atmosphere, has a lot of fun activities for families to do with young kids. You can read a lot about the history of South Australia here as well there are many helpful story boards around. Also a great place to read or study. There's a cute library cafe on the ground floor. Would love to come back and do a full tour next time
  • An attractive design located in ideal location A historical space well mixed with modern part. The exhibition corridor combined with self study tables make me feel like in Harry Potters seri who never in Europe style before. Good cultural and attractive environment inside.
