For a population of approx. 60,000 people, this library is outstanding. Good facilities ... from high quality photocopiers to quiet reading areas. The staff are always helpful. A peaceful ambience.

It's a great place to come and relax, but the book stock is pretty poor. The children's stock is very good, but the teenage and adult stock is very small. I would expect more from a library so widely known in the community.

Great place to come and use wifi and relax. They have now installed a coffee machine which is great to have a warm drink while using the library.

Visited this building to use the services, staff were very friendly, toilets on the 2nd floor and free wifi. The inside is much bigger than it looks on the outside. Appears to be well stocked and is a quiet oasis in the centre of town.
