Bolton Central Library

This is the first time I’ve come across a library, archives and … aquarium in the same building. It is an impressive looking building – particularly after the modern ones I have seen recently.

A member of staff stopped me in the foyer to warn me that the computers weren’t working today – which I thought was considerate. The reserved books are left out so that people can pick them up themselves – which I find very trusting. The returned books are sorted into subject while they await shelving which is very helpful for readers. Lots of stock. Open Sundays. All in all scoring lots of points for customer service.
