Enjoy the benefits of a combined reading room and café, a place to meet with friends or collaborate with colleagues. Access free Wi-Fi, read the latest news or digital book while sipping a coffee and enjoying breathtaking views of the river below. Our café partner, Monigram Coffee Roasters, is serving their delightful restaurant fare and uncompromising coffee - making the Reading Room and the Riverview Room favourite meet-up locations for everyone.

Didn’t bring your laptop but want to use a computer?  Don’t worry – you can borrow one of our laptops (complete with the full Microsoft Office Suite) and use it while in the building.  All you need is your library card to sign one out.  Ask at the Member Services desk.

Have decided to stay for a while but your phone needs charging? We’ve got you covered there too. Ask at the Member Services desk to borrow the charging cord you need. 

If you’ve been inspired by the location and wonder about using the space for an event or party, please see the details on our Room Bookings + Rentals page.
