More of a community centre rather then a quiet library with a wide range of books
Great staff and loads of activities. Very friendly, familiar place.
The selection of books is tiny. My main complaint is the lack of specific books, as someone who loves classics this library was horrifying as it had maybe three that I could find, whereas they had shelves and shelves of romance novels. The fantasy selection was half filled with horror and Sci-fi. There was barely one shelf of Ya books, and was in need of weeding and updating. Still it was clean, open and spacious. The staff couldn't have been more helpful when I joined, and the book return and withdraw machines were easy to use. The library has potential but needs more variety- some Shakespeare, Dickens, Bronte and some Victor Hugo wouldn't hurt. Some books on mythology and adult compilations of fairy tales and folk lore throughout different cultures would be nice. I like that they are engaging with the community but all the chairs were being used by a club of some kind, and I like to sit and read the first few pages of a book before I take it out. I would go again, but I want to warn anyone that the selections are not fantastic, and any one who likes to read a variety might end up a little disappointed. Still, good staff and nice layout. Will definitly keep going because even with the limitations they had quite a few books I would want to read.
Amazing! Packed with activities & events. Not just a library but a community hub. Storytelling, women's groups, Esol, events, parties, etc etc. Must attend & take a list. 21 activities per week! Wow!!!
Staff are very polite, place is quite small so it hard to study without getting distracted by noise
