Family reading time

My two girls love coming to the library. It's a chance for them to pick their own books and it gives me a chance to search the web, or read a paper. Staff are very helpful.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry that your recent visit did not meet your expectations. Staff use quieter times at the counter to catch up on tasks, this can include processing deliveries of books, or preparing books to be sent to other libraries. At times there may be a large amount of books being relocated, and the counter area can appear to have books everywhere. I do hope that this did not spoil your visit and that you will return again soon. Regards Michael Lynn Area Manager Libraries NI

Decided to join the library to encourage me to read more. The staff are so friendly and helpful it's a real pleasure to go in. Easy to join, borrow and return books in person or sign up for ebooks.

Ridiculous
Aug 2016
Really don't know where these reviews for positive "friendly" staff are coming from every time ive been in the staff are sulky and barely look at you. Also keep you waiting ages when you pay to print things before they realise you exist. Can barely use the learning centre as there's always something on in it so rarely get the chance to print without someone telling you the learning centre is closing at a certain time for a certain event.

Delightful Librarians
Aug 2016 • Family
My family and I were traveling to Ballyclare and our GPS was not working properly. I stopped into the library for some much needed WiFi. I could not log on as I do not have a library card. I went to the desk and the three librarians were so very kind and helpful! Showed me on a map were I was going and off we went and found our destination without further difficulty! They really went above and beyond and I so appreciate that! Patrons of this library are fortunate to have such kind and wonderful librarians!!

Modern technology with vast selection of books
Jul 2016 • Solo
Today a visit to your local library is a totally different experience to what my youth was. You enter into a relaxed and warm environment. Source your books and with a scan of your ticket your on your way. There are computers if you need to go online for research and you can print your findings off.
If you need assistance or other help the staff are there for you.
All I can say is enjoy and bring children for reading days. They'll love it

Great library - perfect for doing your coursework in!
Nov 2015 • Solo
This used to be my local library and I have to say it is the best. It is a spacious study area as well as having a large choice of books under every subject imaginable...there is a kids section. Newspapers are available and they have recently installed self service machines so if you are in a hurry and there' a queue at the reception, you can save time by scanning your loans yourself. This library also offers web access, a photocopying service too. I have visited many times during which I was able to do my coursework in peace and quiet....
