Always go here during the summer months and the staff are very helpful and plesdant. They run different kids' activities, like lego club, to encourage children into libraries which is great. Good facilities for a small library.

Staff very unhelpful and old assistant manager was quite sharp with my three children aged 3 years,5 years and 7 years for looking at books and not tidying after them, excuse me but ain't that part of her job.
