The computer suite contains 9 computers which can be booked out by community groups to use for classes. They offer the following:
The computers are available to library members to use for free and are also utilised for the various free computer courses ran by Quest the libraries computer training team and other partner organisations.
The Livingstone Suite is a great space to use with small groups and allows for a greater degree of privacy than the other spaces as it is a self contained room.
The Training and Meeting Room can hold up to 6-8 people seated and can be used by a broad range of groups for training, demonstrations and small private meetings. The space includes:
The junior area of the library is a large welcoming environment with moveable shelving units. The space is used for family activities such as Bookbug song and rhyme sessions, and Storytelling. The facilities include:
The Reading Room is located at the rear of the library and is a good space to and read and have a coffee. You will find the non-fiction collection in the Reading Room. This is an enjoyable space away from the main library where you can relax and spend some 'quiet time' reading.
The training and activity zone consists of two areas. The first is a large open space and is used currently for local drama and dance groups use for rehearsal but could be adapted for other uses such as meeting and seminars etc.
The smaller area can be used for medium sized training groups and meeting etc.
