These all have the facility to access your personal files and folders within your N Drive as well as being connected to the library printer.

On the lower deck of the library you are able to take a more relaxed approach to reading, with comfortable seating and an impressive selection of fictional books for you to browse and read, whereas the main floor consists of non-fictional books. A full catalogue of our literature can be found here
