Main Facilities

Adult Lending Library ground floor – level 1
Due to our unique independent status we have a wide ‘hand picked’ selection of items on our shelves ready for you to borrow with no waiting for inter-branch transport.  There is also an area with information booklets and magazines for senior citizens to sit and browse and a lift to carry you up to the majority of the non-fiction books for lending on the first floor. We also have an extensive Reserve stock held in our basement, so if you are looking for a book you have found in our catalogue and cannot see it on the shelves, please ask a member of our friendly staff.
