At the moment, our premises are not fully accessible. There is one step and a set of heavy doors at the main entrance, followed by seven more steps and two more sets of heavy doors. We are currently looking into the possibility of adding a stairlift to improve access.
If you need help accessing the library, please telephone ahead and we will be very happy to offer you assistance.
