Please note: Due to restrictions relating to phased reopening, laptops are temporarily unavailable and a limited number of computers only are available for 30 minute sessions, on a first come first served basis. This will hopefully allow our library visitors quick access to vital services, while allowing for limited capacity numbers in the building, and is in line with the latest public health advice. Please bear with us as we work to resume services in a gradual way.
