I was at the Central City Library after visiting the Art Museum. The Central City Library had a good collection of Asian books and there was a little art and craft corner for children to make Lunar New Year crafts.

Massive library with free wifi from the cafe. Multiple stories and open till 8pm most days. Lots of places to sit and plug in, or ya know, the old fashioned thing of reading a book.

We had some time to kill and decided to take the kids to the library. They have a really great kids section with lots of books and some really cool seating. Plus a "tree" house of sorts.

A clean, modern, cheerful interior with a feeling of open space. Lots of desks to study at, some with mains power, lots of chairs around pillars and against walls encourage sitting. WiFi is reasonably fast and free upto 1gb per day.
