Mostly go to the Forum to use the central library, which I love. There is a cafe inside the forum which is reasonable. There are sometimes events taking place either inside or just outside the forum, some of which are worth a visit.

We regularly visit the Forum for its events and fairs (e.g. the Christmas fair, the jobs fair, exhibitions and large events) as well as the library. The staff are all very welcoming and it is always clean and tidy.

There are places to eat, parking, events on occasions and some special events sometime. Worth a visit especially the location which is near the market and lots of shops in the city centre.

The library is located here in this light and airy with the huge glass frontage. The building also has a resturant and cafe along with studios for the BBC. The foyer often has exhibitions and there is a tourist office where souvenirs can be bought
