Librarians:  the original search engines

Our top reasons to become a library member!

Yes, we’ve heard it too: ‘thanks to the internet, we no longer need libraries’. In a world full of ‘fake news’ and where a tweet can create public policy we’d actually argue that libraries are more important than ever! Here are our top reasons that you may want to head back into a library and become a member today:

Because free WiFi doesn’t need to come with a $7 macchiato

We can help you kick this expensive habit as all of our libraries provide free WiFi and public computers to anyone who steps through our doors; coffee optional!

Because Minecraft may inspire tomorrow’s engineers more than maths

No matter what your age or skill level, our technology programmes have something for everyone. Check them out.

Because employers want people who know the difference between facts and tweets

Enough said. Go old school with a book or check out our eResources!

Because a search engine only gives you a million results. A librarian gives you the right one

Got research to do but don’t know where to start?  Whatever you want to know, book a 30-minute slot with the original search engine (aka a librarian!) to get you started.

Because an eBook addiction can get expensive

This is another way we can save you some cash!  Become a member and get access to a fantastic range of eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines.

Because the best research has more than 140 characters

All of our members have access to hundreds of free eResources like, English language skills and powerful searching resources. Get the real facts, first time, for free.

So, what are you waiting for?!  Take advantage of all this and MORE by becoming a library member!
