Our reading rooms are on the entrance floor and are suitable for those seeking a quiet environment. Computers are allowed but use headphones to avoid sound leakage. Your mobile phone should be turned off or in silent mode. In Bengtssonssalen, there are reading booths. In Tegnérssalen, there are larger tables.
