Reference Library Consultation

Reference Library

We would like your help in planning the future development of our Reference Library here at Central Library. We are looking to improve the way we provide information to our users - and we would also like to hear from people who do not currently use the Reference Library.

You can send us your suggestions via the survey form here (either by email or by dropping it in at any library).

You can also send your comments or suggestions using the link below.

We look forward to hearing from you.
