Overview
More
More than "just" a library we provide a community resource, catering for all ages. As well as welcoming locals we are delighted to have visitors coming in and using our facilities and joining in our activities. If we're busy you may have to wait a short while for assistance but you can be assured that we are always polite and friendly, treating everyone with respect! We have tourist information including bus and train timetables. We also have lots of resources on local activities and services. We have WiFi and computers and i pads. We have a great selection of books too - including old ones for sale very cheaply! This year we have refurbished our Junior Library and are very proud of our enhanced stock! If we don't have what you need, or can't answer a question, we'll do our best to help. We have a quiet garden where you can sit and enjoy the peace and the flowers; we have a toilet and can even provide a cup of tea or coffee -or bring your own from a nearby cafe. Everybody welcome.
