Needed to do some printing and this was the nearest library. Absolutely amazed that the library was within this beautiful government building. Even has a gift shop! Staff so helpful - well worth a look.

Free music at Friday lunch. Free internet. Free talks by Authors. Free novels to swap. Excellent community information board. Kids club. Craft classes. It is a learning hub not a dusty book vault.
