We were here specifically for the kids section of the library. The staff there are wonderful and helped us sign up our 11 month old daughter for her own little account. The range of books was great and the kids space was well laid out.

This library has been beautifully extended but still retains the old library which is a listed building. Situated in Ward Park it attracts hoarders of children, students and adults. It offers free use of computers. Staff are friendly and helpful. There are extensive classes of activities to be enjoyed.

This is a total revamp of a classical Carnegie Library. My only question is, 'Why do affluent places have libraries and other places don't?

This is the main library in Bangor and is only a few years old. It had a pleasant setting on the edge of Ward Park. Car parking is a bit difficult but not if you're prepared to walk for 5 minutes from a car park. The refurbished and extended building is modern, bright and cheery with good facilities, including a... More

I agree with the sentiments expressed in the vast majority of previous comments, a good library and helpful staff. i do however have a serious gripe about the e-book access from the library. "Overdrive" is horrendous and I have been unable to transfer borrowed books to my Sony or Kindle readers. Can some IT guru from the Library service provide... More

Excellent library with great views over Ward Park. The library is set over three floors, and incorporates the original Carnegie Library with a newer extension.
