“Books glorious books”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

As well as providing everything anyone could want to read, helpful people and technology to search for information, and comfortable spaces to read in, and there's an excellent cafe and brilliant architecture/design that's worth a look even if you don't want to read.

“Spacious and well stocked library”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Good feeling of space. Well stocked with a good range of books, magazines, audio books, DVDs and CDs. Good sitting areas, both desk space with good light from the big windows and comfortable chairs dotted about.
The staff are always friendly and helpful. There are changing displays of books on a subject usually relevant to what is going on at the time.

“Knowledge”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I often have been to this library and have found the people there so helpful and resourceful. If you have any kind of question, they will do their best to get you an answer. The collection is decent and well-maintained. Go there. Read.
