Había visto fotos de esta biblioteca y nos agendamos visitarla cuando estuviésemos en Melbourne.

We went with my wife and kids, and enjoy all of its wonderful rooms, balconies, its dome, and its fantastic Museum (with the history of the book, from the first manuscripts up to the first comics. I highly recommend this visit!
建物自体が博物館のような作りです。入口前の広場には大勢の人が座ったりしてのんびり過ごしていました。 私は雑誌のコーナーにて時間をつぶしていました。 学生さんが勉強するのに机を利用していたので空いている席が なく、座る場所があまりありませんでした。 more »It is like the Museum building itself. Many people sat in the square in front of the entrance, was relaxing. I was killing time in the corner of the magazine. Was no where to sit, but the seat vacant because it was using a desk to study students too much.
Beautiful library, generously open and staffed by a great team of people. It's a traditional library and so much more. Exhibitions, galleries, work spaces, chess club, historical displays and a few random curios like the Shakespeare stained glass window. Architecturally, a wonderful study and so much of the interior is accessible. Cafe, book store and toilets all available. Wheelchair accessible too.
Great library. Huge collection and lots of space to read and study. If you are visiting, check The Dome, enjoy the museum about the World of the Book and don't miss the small art gallery. Remember to be quiet (it's a library after all) and take a pic from level 6 of the Dome.
