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.

Lovely quiet environment in a great building. Fantastic selection of reference books. You can sit and read, study or just walk through and browse.
