I remember this library, when it first opened and it was fantastic. Unfortunately the passage of time and the falling of literacy standards in today’s society, has taken its toll on the stock list. Everything in here is post modernistic right down to the auto check in/out machine. The government has used the lack of book learning to cut back on funding for public libraries, and it shows. The computer room however always seems to be well used. On the plus side the librarians do storytelling for youngsters on certain days.

This was right beside the C.S. Lewis wardrobe sculpture. I’m sure the famous author would approve of his work being celebrated next to a free library. Big airy main hall, a new building, high arched roof on girders. Lots of light from windows high up on both sides and skylights above. There was a very impressive lion made of bits and stripes of stuff in the entryway. There was a World War I Irish speaking soldiers display in the main area. A clock in the wall was useful. They had Daily Mail (yuk) and the Ulster Scot newspapers to read. Computers. No one looked up to say “hello”, when I was entering or leaving. Shut for lunch when I passed by later.

Holywood Arches library is a great spot for families and solo readers a like. The inside is well furnished and feels welcome. A particular highlight is the statue of C.S. Lewis (a local hero) outside.
