Compact, pleasant, a quiet spot for a quiet read.

It was a cold day and we went inside for a sit down in the warmth and to read the newspapers. Lovely peaceful spot. Plenty of local history books on the shelves. Nice staff.

This library has a lovely atmosphere. It’s always welcoming and the interior design is light and lively, adding to the positive feeling created as you walk in. A superb resource and a great place to visit.

Great local service
Jul 2019 • Couples
I regularly use the Library, and it's Internet services when visiting Carnlough . The staff are always helpful , and it's a beautifully restored building in the heart of the village. It's the type of local service that needs support and use to ensure it's there for many years to come. I often order books for collection and can return to other Libraires NI branches if it's more convenient. Drop in and see for yourself.

The best little library in the country.
Jan 2018 • Solo
Small but perfect in every way. Always a great welcome and attention from Julie and staff for visitors and local residents.
Children particularly welcome.
Demonstrates perfectly why we still need libraries -much more than the books on the shelves.

Chatty
Jul 2017 • Friends
I was in the town on a Wednesday afternoon, and the library was open. Too often budget cuts in the system are targeted at smaller libraries, shutting them down for half the days of the week. This branch is small. Two computers, two staff. The staff were chatty, which is good. I liked some interesting locally-themed art on the wall behind the front desk; imitation stained glass. Well located, right by the harbour.

Hub of the community

I was so glad that this magnificentl resource was saved and revamped. I love to pop in when I am visiting. The heritage centre in the making upstairs is another great asset. I spent a delightful Saturday there during Heritage weekend when one of the locals and a stalwart of the community, Mary, conducted a very entertaining talk and walk around Carnlough followed by refreshments upstairs. It was great as a visitor to feel part of village life. Can't wait to return and see what else is on offer!

Disappointed to find the library closed today. The opening hours in a windows said they should have been open at that hour on a Saturday, and no note I saw said there was anything different about today. The reason might be that the town's summer festival was on. I would have thought that would be a great day to stay open as usual, with extra visitors in the town.

A jewel in the village
Jun 2016 • Friends
Although not quite 'finished' this resource will give the people of Carnlough a most valuable resource: meetings, pupil centred activities and interest groups such as the Book Club will make this a focal point in the village. An excellent venue to explore the history of the village with its links to aristocracy and the industrial wealth of the past. Lovely view!
