In the middle of town so very accessible. Have reasonable number of books on shelves and periodicals so a very good chance to find a book that you might be interested in.

Well set out with friendly staff and it's easy to find what you're looking for. And if you place a reserve on an item they text you when it's in.

This is one of Castlemaine's only free WiFi spots: you can use their computers or your own. Nice spot to read the papers. Great kids book area with frequent story reading sessions.
