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.

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.

The Guille-Alles is simply unique. It is probably Guernsey's very best institution from an Island that is not noted for it's imagination. Recently re-furbished it offer the reader or browser or student a brilliant environment - relaxed and stylish but retaining that all important historic...More
