“So helpful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

If ever you need help, the librarians are always on hand. As the library is fairly small, stock is limited but ordered books are kept on a shelf & are easily identified.

“one of the finest buildings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This building is one of the finest in the area. Its chiminee stacks are quite amazing to look at. The inside of the library, like the outside is first class condition. The library is well laid out , and is a nice place to relax.
