  • A large anonymous library in an old building. Really quiet it's just a few dogs that bark Pårlande water

  • We couldn't get in, the old hospital is a very nice building, iene a beautiful central courtyard. The area did not seem very safe, there were many people sleeping in all corners and there were several unpleasant situations. Then when we arrive at the door of the Library we find it closed since in the summer months on Saturdays close. I wouldn't go in that area again.

  • There is a rassista man working there and not leaving them alone who sit down on the chair calmly and everyone is aggressive !! Then I get the police out and lie to them! I don't understand how such a disgusting man can work there! This man is aressiv sitting there all day in the library garden about 175 tall, bearded, about 85-90kg sunglasses on it constantly, who should take care of him because he was aggressive and attacked me then he called me the police, I have seen that did it with more people !! I do not understand how such a disgusting man can work there!
