“Lovely little place to sit and browse through books etc”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I always enjoy the library as there are several floors to enjoy and their used books for sale downstairs. Purchased some really god books and magazines there!
There is a good computer section on the second floor if you need to do some research or print an article.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.

“Fun to see!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

They just repainted the floor artwork so it's especially bright looking. The clock on the ceiling is cool, but since they had just repainted the floor the pendulum wasn't on.

Fun to see if you're close by, but wouldn't go out of my way!
