“A little treasure”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

What a lovely way to while away an hour in the heart of Leigh. A library that is just as a library should be. . . quiet, well stocked and with well informed librarians who are easy to find and eager to help.

“A nice building but not great for research”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Was given a research project so the obvious thing to do was to go and look for books, and to my surprise the selection was rather limited.

Staff are polite, its quiet and a rather nice building.

“Nice to look at but useless for people with disabilities”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I agree that Leigh library is housed in a beautiful old building and has nice gardens. However, it is a nightmare for pushchairs and people with disabilities. Lack of parking makes it very difficult for anyone visitng from out of town.
