  • One of the best libraries I have been to. Kids floor is amazing. I just wish they had a wider section for books in English.

  • Just for kids area: a bit disappointing. Large and nice looking, but lacking any toys or other things to interact with that I'm used to at a library. They had some iPad-like devices but half were not working. For a city that is 50% non-Dutch they have a really small section of books in other languages.

  • Nice place to spend an afternoon to read books, newspapers, movies or just sit here doing your own thing. There are bars to grab a soft drink and simple meals.

  • Oba is a nice place with very nice view and a lot of good books. Service is really good as well. However, if you want to study in silence don't go there it's so loud.. Everywhere.
