    Beautiful building both inside and out, but as it's so busy with tourists I don't think it would be the best place to read or study! Help support the library by visiting the gift shop on the 1st floor

    For outlets and wi-fi go to the third floor. If you don't see clouds painted on the ceiling you're in the wrong space.
