In the city centre, just a minute or two away from the Monument and Northumberland street, this is a great resource for Visitors and locals.
There is no official Tourist information centre in the city now, but the library provides free city maps and local information- free internet and a good café too!

I spent some time here waiting for my bus back up to Scotland and I have to say I was very impressed with the structure of the library. It appeared to be a comprehensive community building, the obvious library there were also jobseekers advice points. Housing advice and tourist information. All of these services appeared to be organised and systematic. Lessons could be learned here.

The major library in the city centre, housing Tourist information, a decent cafe, as well a a large public lending library. Now has various parts of the City council departments within, and a large history centre, with computers to be able to use for research. Frequent user.

This library is quite modern inside and they have a nice cafe when you're feeling peckish. If you want to use the computer you need to book it with a member of staff and they will tell you. Id reccomend getting a library card as you'll need this for other things too. They have a good selection of fiction and non-fiction books!
