Level 2 features a zines collection, newspapers, lounge and study area.  A large number of publicly accessible computers are available on both level 1 and 2, including 16 which have Adobe Creative Cloud.

A mezzanine level is dedicated to our children’s collection and hosts regular rhymetime and storytime sessions.
