The Library is primarily open plan but provides the user with a rich and diverse number of learning and leisure settings. The media engages with the user from the outset with quick pick arranged 'retail style' at the main entrance of the building, allowing busy workers to drop into the library and grab the latest novel.
The library space enjoys wonderful natural light and views out across the river. Internally the aesthetic is playful with an educational bias and will include pc facilities, play space, an interactive story telling space and media. The library is fully enabled with power and data (both hard wired and WiFi) and will be supported by a RFID security and management system. This will allow staff to roam the library and improve customer service. Additional enquiry pods are placed within the atria centrally and adjacent to the children's library.
