A haven of rest.
Feb 2019 • Couples
I spent a few hours in the Library, after breakfast in a local cafe, while waiting for my train. It was a haven of rest with comfortable chairs, tea/coffee facilities and well positioned tables and seating for studying purposes.
The library was well stocked and staff were friendly and helpful.
Daily papers allowed me to catch up on the day's news while passing time.

A wet day in Portadown.
Jan 2019 • Couples
After shopping in the town centre and the rain is continuing what better place to go than the library. A GREAT array of books and I'm not a reader but I found one which was of great interest to me, st o I riled away three quarters of an hour glancing through it.No shortage of books by all famous authors and if you cant find what you're looking for the very helpful staff will point you in the right direction.

Lots of facilities at the Library. Upstairs has a computer suite which is very popular. You can also join the knitting club on a Monday morning. There is a supply of daily newspapers. There is also the story telling for children.g

The library is located in the centre of town but there are no parking facilities although the Magowan Buildings car park isn't far away and is cheap.
There is a good selection of books of all genres and the opportunity to request books from other branches for a small charge. Withdrawing/returning books is on a self service basis. The building is warm with good seating areas and you can buy tea or coffee for £1. There is a quiet reading room and upstairs there are 28 computers which are free of charge for library members but non members are charged a not unreasonable fee. I find the staff helpful and pleasant and the library provides a good service for people of all ages.

In portadown library the staff are very friendly and helpful. Loads of books. Good service also upstairs with computers and printing service. Would highly recommend thier rhythm and rhyme sessions on a Friday for children aged 0-4. All my children loved it and the staff are fantastic at what they do.

Friendliest part of Portadown
Dec 2015 • Family
Portadown has numerous shops with very poor people skills/attitudes towards their customers.....(Tipplers, Southern Fried Chicken) to name the worst. Was great to go in the library with kids during the country comes to town festival and be in shock at the nice friendly staff (when comparing against the above).
