Nice idea. A subscription library with a wide selection of general interest books. But the world has moved on. Kindles, Amazon cheap hard copies generally delivered next day, Internet resources for anything arty or reference. A well intentioned friend took me on a visit a few weeks ago but I am afraid that the visit put me off rather than enthused me to become a member. Sadly it is dark, verging on the dingy, the rooms are sombre with basic bookcases and little to fire any interest. It looks as though cash flow is slow and low and the number of newer books dispiriting. I really wonder whether there is any longer the demand or need for this venerable old institution. Pity.
