Welcome to our new website

The famous 'Pork Pie Library' is located at the roundabout at the top of Saffron Lane, where it meets the ring road. It has books to borrow, free access to public computers, self-service kiosks and information. We also have activities and learning opportunities for children and adults. It's free and easy to join so why not come along and see what we have for you.
