After finding that people in Melbourne just go to cafes to have coffee and hang out with friends, we decided to try out a public library. The State Library of Victoria is the city’s main branch. At the entrance, people lounge around on the front steps; inside, loads of people are quietly working or studying.
Wifi connection: B+
Crowded: Moderately full on a Sunday afternoon
Bottom line: Go here if you want to get some serious work done.
