The staff here are great. Very attentive and Knowledgeable. The library is very small but caters well for study with sufficient computers and desks. The main drawback is the parking in an extremely busy tourist town. There are insufficient spaces , particularly for disabled.

The library did not really have any nice places to sit, but it was good enough for spending a little time looking at books.
