Why is it still closed?
Jun 2021 • Solo
Usually a very good library but lately it's been closed even though all other libraries have reopened. Twice I have made the journey there to be disappointed. Online it still says it's open but it's not! And I don't think it's the roadworks outside as there's a pedestrian path down the side of Pat's Brae.

Good selection of craft books I was looking for. Used the self serve facilities to check out my books - it was straight forward to use. Nice atmosphere - will definitely be back.

Microfilm.

They have a wealth of great resources concentrated here, and generously long opening hours. I only get here rarely, but when I do, I try to make the most of what’s there. They have many hundreds of reels of different newspapers on microfilm. They have old photograph collections. Ballymena Library peculiarly has better resources about my home town than my local library does! Two great books I wanted were marked as “borrowable,” but when I tried, they could not be taken away. Booo. My lift was due, my day was done, and they had to go back to their shelves.

A good afternoon activity
Nov 2017 • Friends
A excellent library, poor parking nearby however there is pay and display further along road. Lift to access upper floors. Fantastic variety and arrangements of books computers for public use. Staff helpful if asked however not forth coming or overly friendly. Great variety of magazines and Newspapers. Cafe nearby with excellent food. Please visit and see for yourself

I resolve to visit more often and spend more time in this quiet and peaceful setting to peruse the written word. Such excellent staff and a jewel in Ballymena's crown.
