Per Nyeng skrev i fagbladet Bibliotek70, 94/22:

".... fristelser og muligheder, oplevelser og oplysninger. Via indskudte billedsekvenser fra livet uden for biblioteksmurene antydes det meget effektfuldt og humorladet, hvad det er for verdener af skønhed og djævelskab et simpelt biblioteksbesøg kan oprulle og åbne for en. Og det med en musiksætning af Jens Fink-Jensen, som meget suggestivt spiller op til instruktøren Jacob Crawfurds dristige kameraføring og overrumplende og nærgående billedvinkler. Helt uden tale og underholdende som den er, bør denne video også kunne bruges, når dansk biblioteksvæsens ynde og velmagt skal demonstreres i udlandet."
