New Huntingdon library - great
AT long last we are able to use and enjoy the wonderful new library in Huntingdon, although it has the inevitable design faults of most modern buildings. Unusable vertical space is an absolute requirement in any public building erected in the last 20 year
AT long last we are able to use and enjoy the wonderful new library in Huntingdon, although it has the inevitable design faults of most modern buildings. Unusable vertical space is an absolute requirement in any public building erected in the last 20 years, in order to promote the 'wow' factor.
However, apart from some problems with the lift and computers, and inadequate provision of toilets, the building does come up to expectations.
As a library user, I want a comfortable environment in which to browse through a selection of books, use the computers, and obtain information from the reference library, so I am very satisfied.
But, however wonderful the building may be, it would not work without the wonderful staff who provide such a willing and friendly service, greeting the public with a friendly welcome and offers of help.

I have always been very impressed by the efficient and willing attitude of the librarians at Huntingdon branch, so it is no surprise that they continue to offer the same high level of service in the new building. Long may it continue.
