I am a bookworm so the library to me is the most important place in Stoke. Its a very modern building and very eco-friendly using natural materials and having a very low carbon footprint. Inside is very well organised with an extremely large diverse selection of books, computers, reference books and an instruction room for computer courses plus a children`s... More

like most of the council run facilities I have been to in Stoke on Trent,this is no different.I really feel for the people in Stoke as the tax paying people don't get the quality facilities that they should have compared to other towns. I feel the people of Stoke should stand up to the council and get them to do... More

I live 11 miles away from stoke Library now, but I still work in Newcastle under Lyme. I would never use any other library but Stoke! Over the years I have tried other libraries in the Five Towns but none can match the service you get at Stoke Library. All the staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for... More

This is a great place, the library is very well stocked and the staff are always helpful. If you require a book not in stock, they will get it for you and then phone you when it is available. Local history, internet and email are all for use with friendly tuition, if required. --and all free of charge.

I always find the staff most helpful here and the library offers a wide selection of books, an Internet and printing service plus a large children's library. Good on-line service for making reservations or renewing your books. Staff have taken time to order books for me which are not held at the library.
