    This large, modern library once set the scene in an episode of BBC’s ‘Sherlock’. Most days, though, it acts as the backdrop for Cardiff students working hard and reading books.

    Sit in one of the windows overlooking the Hayes with a book and chill while world bustles about in front of you. If it's snowing (like it is now) laugh cruelly as people fall :-)

    Very helpful staff here, and you can return book in any Cardiff library branch across the City

    Don't except to be able to plug your laptop in - most of the plug points have recently been covered for 'health and safety reasons'

    Ask an assistant for instructions for WiFi. It requires setting up some proxy settings. Though it blocks certain sites the council deem unsuitable, like Instagram and the iTunes store.

    Ask the staff to point out the available power sockets to charge your laptop.

    Wireless works perfectly for me, follow the proxy instructions they give you at the info desk & you'll be online!

    Take your laptop with you, sit down, and surf for free on their very fast and reliable internet. No membership card needed.

    The wireless no longer works here. The librarians will give you a sheet of useless instructions. Just go to Starbucks in St Davids instead

    Des sièges confortables, de bons livres, du wifi gratuit... Mais l'ambiance actuelle est un peu gâchée par les travaux, qui émettent bruit et poussière...
