INCREDIBLE LOUD LIBRARY. It is full of crying children, people speaking loudly and eating everywhere

1/ 5

INCREDIBLE LOUD LIBRARY. It is full of crying children, people speaking loudly and eating everywhere and the stuff also does not respect the focus. it is impossible to focus on you study or reading. the private book shop seems to be more quiet than this library. It is really more a social play for internet or playing that q a quiet place where relax and reading is possible.

2/ 5

World's noisiest Library. Facilities are great, the people are the problem. No quiet rules are enforced and the librarians have loud and never ending conversations. If you find constant noise and loud talking distracting, this is not the library for you. If you want to sing, shout, take phone calls, teach students and generally be an inconsiderate ding dong then come on in, you're sure to make many friends with similar interests.

Good study space - found it very easy to concentrate and do some work.There is a nice study space but is often a little busy.Just beware that the staff are incredibly loud and do not seem to care that people are trying to study.Also, I went to the library man and asked him where I collect my library card and this dude just says you gotta go downstairs in a very condescending voice.Like, come on at least be a little polite - you're having a very loud mothers meeting in front of all of the people studying, don't act mad at us.Not impressed.However, the lady downstairs getting me my card was very kind :)Nevertheless, a good study space.

4/ 5

The most beautiful library I have ever been in. Amazing architecture and so much space for privacy and seating. All public records are kept at this library so it is a interesting place to spend the day, even if it's to see what was going on in the local news on the day you were born from the newspaper archives. It's close to the docks so you can go and have a coffee or something stronger after in one of the many coffee shop's/bars that are situated at the watershed just behind the library.

3/ 5

Such a beautiful building! The Bristol Central Library plays such an important role in the lives of professionals in Bristol, in that it is the nearest thing to a university library. It is open to people who cannot use the University of Bristol library (which is most of us). There's nowadays a big push to promote libraries to children, non-readers, people who want to socialise - but this library plays primarily a different role: it is an important part of Bristol's offer to attract young staff to the city. One unfortunate problem is that the library staff have the curious habit, as a recent reviewer pointed out, of putting non-reference books in the reference section. The apparent justification is that this will help preserve books. But there is not much point in preserving books if they cannot be read! This policy doesn't seem to make any sense. Put reference books in reference by all means - but why make it impossible for people to use the library for any serious reading by putting obviously non-reference books in reference?
