  • limited parking facilities and no disabled parking spaces nearby 
  • National Concessionary bus pass applications are quick and easy to apply for online.  If you do not have access to the internet they can be processed Monday to Friday during normal opening hours.
  • Recycling bags and boxes - This library does not hold stocks but we can order on your behalf or you can order direct using our request recycling equipment / recycling containment online form.
  • Council Payments - Payments for Council services such as Council Tax or Business Rates cannot be taken at this location, however there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments, with most Post Offices still accepting cheques at no extra cost. Your account will be updated overnight and many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends, offering greater flexibility and choice. Head over to my area to see which facilities are available to you more locally.
