Customs House Library is another one with good free wifi

Customs House library just opposite Circular Quay is another good library. Surprisingly spacious, it covers three floors. Best of all is a separate quiet room. And people really are quiet there!

This is something old fogeys like myself really appreciate. In the past people used to be quiet right throughout a library. But now, it seems pretty much accepted that you can happily talk inside a library at the same volume you do outside.

So, it's great when you actually find a place where people are seriously quiet and you can concentrate without interruption. 

Like so many old buildings in Sydney, it's stunning. 

UPDATE: Took this video a few days ago. Give a sense of the building's position in relation to Circular Quay.
