The library is a very pleasant, light building in the town centre, near the Georgian circle which was used for the filming of David Copperfield with Nicholas Lyndhurst. It is on two floors and has computers for public use. There are a variety of reading matter including local interest.

Unusual these days, this library was ideally quiet as I needed to swot up on a few subjects for a course I was attending

Small, poor stock, greedy book sale prices. Even the main Library in Cambridge is not a patch on the one we moved from in Barnsley South Yorkshire. Cambridgeshire the home of a Major University should do better than this.

The librarians here are really helpful. They suggested titles for us when seeking maths text books and ordered items in for us.

This is one of the best libraries I have ever been in - pleasant, professional, helpful, friendly staff. We have recently moved from Yorkshire where, in my area, we also had an excellent library, but Wisbech definitely gets five stars from me!

Went to see the Opera Dudes at the library and it was a delightful evening. There was a limited bar which was a pleasant surprise and the library staff had made every effort to ensure it was a good evening. I hope there will be more of these events in the future and that they will be well attended. Use... More
