I have to say I think our library is rather excellent.
It is over two floors, with the grown up section and reference library on the lower floor. It is roomy and light, with sofas for reading and various chairs scattered around.
There is also the audio library, the DVD and CD section.
Upstairs is the internet room, next to which is a 'chill zone' - there are magasines here and comfy sofas and seats with a small snack bar.
Also here is the childrens library. It's rather noisy! There is a great selection of authors and titles. There are bean bags and small chairs.
My daughter knows her way round the library like a pro, and I sometimes lose track of her. But all I have to do is sit down and wait, and I know I'll find her!
There is an information point in the far corner of the reference section and in the foyer are various posters giving information about useful clubs, associations, groups and courses.
Poole's central library sits proudly above the bus station and dolphin centre and I the largest in the area. After recent overhauls and refurbishments the library is now spaciously set out with easy to understand and clearly marked sections. On the first floor is the main library with plenty of room to sit and read for a while as well as the CD and DVD are where for a small charge (and less than video stores) you can borrow movies and music albums. Up stairs is the children's library as well as the internet access room and a small café selling coffees and a few snacks. The staff here are great and always willing to help making visits always pleasurable, with plenty of choices.
