Nestled in the heart of Northbridge in Perth's Northern Suburbs, this library is an intellectual hub and a community godsend. It has a huge study area and free WiFi for those that wish to do work in a quiet and relaxing environment. It also boasts a wealth of learning resources and information, ideal for students, hobbyists and graduates alike.

Although they offer no fiction titles as such in the library, they often have a book sale in the foyer area, which sees a wide range of fiction and non fiction discounted down to as little as 50 cents a book. Great value as most are off-casts from various community libraries across WA.

You don't have to be a member to use the library's facilities, anyone can walk in and access free WiFi. There are also computers available to book onto, as well as printing facilities for those that don't have their own laptop or net-book.

The staff are knowledgeable and helpful and there is a relatively big bookshop inside that boasts a wide range of local literature from WA authors as well as discounted titles from a range of topics including biography, science and history to name but a few.

There is also a coffee shop for those who need a caffeine kick to peruse their revision topic. Also, keep your eyes on the library website for upcoming events for writers and academics alike.
