“Brilliant library”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I'm ashamed to say I've not used the library for quite a long time but was forced into using it due to a few "internet free" weeks at home. I was able to access the internet at the library for up to two hours, could sit and read the daily papers, study in a designated area if I wanted to, find out about local classes, groups and volunteering - all for free! It's easy to spend an entire day in here as there is a lovely little cafe too. All the staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and the place is spotlessly clean - including the toilets!

“Books,music and computers a-plenty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

The architecture is a typical example of brutalism - concrete and glass. There is a very good selection of reading material and comfy seating to relax while you browse. The Reference Library has plenty of desk surfaces for study. There is an audio library and a bank of computers. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.
The best area is the separate Children's Library with story telling sessions. On a wet,cold day this is where to hang out with little ones . It's warm and friendly. A small café is close by but the shopping mall food hall is one floor down. There are ample toilets.
