Feedback

Read some of the feedback we've received from library customers.

"I would like to acknowledge the 2 female members of staff in Spotland Library. My daughter and I visited yesterday (4 April 2014) as we do every couple of weeks. Both ladies are very friendly, helpful and always make time to chat with my 3 year old daughter. They both make visiting the library a really lovely experience! Please pass on my thanks to them, they are doing a wonderful job! "​​
