11.30 in the morning monday 11.30 I asked for some help with regards a computer and got a rude and weird answer from a girl called Audrey. Nothing wrong with being civil, not good for public relations.

The staff are all so friendly and helpful. Lots of interesting photos of old Dundee. Spacious and well organised library. With lots of archives. Definitely take my daughter there when I return to Dundee as she loves History.

There is also an opportunity room and a display of Dundee memories. Though it... More

My dad sings the praises of the Wellgate library in Dundee. He is 80 years old and visits every week where he picks between five and seven books.

A relatively clean and quiet place to read. Free wifi and some power points. I occasionally go here to do some work and read books. Remember going to the children's library with the giant pencils. ahh happy memories!
