With good supply and good service I always come back. On Sundays I take a walk the library to watch the sea, read a daily paper and have a "fika". more »
Försöker alltid besöka bibliiotek när jag är ute och reser. Visby var ju outstanding med havet som granne. Slå dig ner i cafét och se ut över havet.

It's just wow-feeling.
A very good library for its size, with a large collection of foreign language books suitable, which is nice for expatriates working at the nearby University of Uppsala Campus Gotland. They're also very generous about letting short-term visitors have a library card. It has comfortable seating and desks, seldom full, and a convenient self-service check-in/check-out system. It has two disadvantages. One is that it doubles as both the University of Uppsala's library AND the town of Visby's public library. As a result it often contains a lot of noisy small children, which is not ideal for scholars trying to study. The other is that it has a very nice café attached, with some of the best coffee around--but the café is open to the library and all the noise from it comes straight in to the work spaces, even the ones upstairs. I go to the library chiefly for the café, but if I need to work I have to go elsewhere.
Cozy and beautiful library view to Almedalen with glass walls lovely eco-friendly seating you have access to computers there are all sorts of bends there pity that they do not have good opening hours
