About This Library

We are located in the west of the borough. In 2017 the library underwent extensive improvement works including a full redecoration, installing new furniture and shelving and a number of repairs including a new floor throughout the library. The library boasts a new, flexible layout allowing the library to programme more creatively and cater for diverse activities, while still allowing customers to access and enjoy core library services.
