When I was a kid I was a compulsive reader. This public library was my second home. They used to run "The Good Readers Club" - read a book, answer a set of questions, get points. No money, just endless points. I used to bug the librarians by taking out the maximum three books, taking them home and reading them, then going back the same day.
The library will be closing on Saturday 2nd June to be replaced with a new library on the same site.
I always liked this light and airy building, with it's striking wooden roof. It's smell is part of me. Don't take away my childhood.
