Testimonials

It's lovely to see all the children using the library and hear their laughter. Well done libraries for entertaining them so well and giving them a love of books. P.S. You're good with adults too.
Excellent service from the library staff. It is a real pleasure to visit each week. Many thanks.
I consider this library to be the most valuable resource to the community of Goole and the surrounding villages. The building has an attractive, open fa├žade which signals that the library is open and welcoming to all sections of the community.
