This is a multi service building.  Customer parking is available to the back of the building which includes four disabled parking bays.  The surface is tarmac and concrete, well maintained and level.  Public transport is immediately in front of the building (five metres); however if going in the opposite direction there would be a need to cross a busy road via pelican crossing.  Entrance is at the front via two very large automatic doors.  Once in the building the library is on one level.  There is one accessible customer toilet.  Large keyboard and mouse, trackball and Boardmaker are also available.  There are low level areas and an Induction loop is installed on the counter.
