Library Mink: Seven Things

Seven things the Victoria State Library has which the British Library doesn't

1. Lockers you have to pay for.
2. Pigeons and seagulls in the plaza in front of the library.
3. A big hall full of ugly victorian paintings.
4. A beautiful glass-domed reading room (similar to the old reading room in the British Museum, only with much more light).
5. Large open-shelf humanities section.
6. A chess room (in which you can read the magazines ChessMoves, Australian Chess and others).
7. Cheap good food places just outside the library: Vietnamese, Indonesian, Jappanese, and even Ice-Cream.
