Have you been to Bracknell Library recently? There are now three floors available to the public, with two entrances, two lifts and new staircases providing access to all floors. Free wi-fi is available throughout the building and there are computers for public use on every floor.
On the lower ground floor you will find a hot drinks vending machine and café-style area, newspapers, magazines, quick pick novels (for when you are short of time), a multimedia area, young people's area and a meeting room for hire. The ground floor is where you will find fiction, biographies, the children's library and a disabled toilet. On the first floor we have our non-fiction and reference books, local studies collection, including photographs and maps, and a quiet study area. We look forward to seeing you soon.
