The staff at the National Library are very cordial and helpful. Research is eased through their expertise and the service offered is aimed to cater for all needs.

Wonderful library packed with old and rare books on display. The library is geared more towards researchers, so the general public isn’t allowed to peruse the shelves but can go in and look at what’s available on display. Beautiful building and room, a dream come true for book lovers. There is a nice statue of Queen Victoria outside, and it’s down the street from the palace St. John’s Co-Cathedral so great location near other attractions. It’s free, all you need is an ID to get in. Only downside is that there is no air conditioning.

Worth a visit. I loved the smell of the books when you enter the library. You can’t visit the entire library just a small part. Books only for research. Really old ones!

I didn't go inside this building since I visited there at Sunday night. It was very beautiful and peaceful. I don't mind just eating there watching this beautiful building. Many people recommended other travelers to visit inside because it's beautiful. Entrance of this library is free but you have to give your information ID and leave your bags behinds if I am not mistaken. So if you have time, please do visit this library because when I come back on April, I will certainly visit and give another review about this library. After all who know what I can find inside. If you haven't visited here during the night time, I certainly recommend it because it gives off different atmosphere and you will love the night light.
