Reading rooms

All library units offer spaces great for individual study. There are quiet reading rooms in the Asa Library, Axelia Library and the Book Tower. Arken Library lacks a dedicated reading room, but makes up for it with plenty of reading desks scattered around a stunning building. The largest reading room (84 seats) is in the Book Tower. The newspaper reading room, also in the Book Tower, is suitable for group study (i.e. the newspaper reading room is not a quiet reading room).
