What is it? With a central borrowing library, reference library and a digital library in tow, the National Library which also happens to be the city's biggest aims to be more than just a place for book-reading.
Why go? Showered with architectural awards before it even opened, the building is designed as two towers, linked by walkways and walled almost entirely with glass. The spacious reference section on the upper floors offers great views of the city. There are some small exhibition spaces, and it also houses the Drama Centre, which regularly showcases local productions.
