My local libraries

If you were in any doubt that in any relative distance, north, south, east or west, from where you are living, that there is a plethora of knowledge, social culture, history and technology, all for free, then look around you! Beautiful buildings, extensive collections, customer service and guidance….


Burnham On Sea Public Library

The purpose-built library was opened in 1985 (on the site of the original County Library headquarters) and is both welcoming and spacious, with a floor area of 667 square metres.


Highbridge Public Library

Since 2000, the library has been sharing premises in Alpha House with the local District Council offices. The library is small but modern and attractive and has proved popular with local people.


Bristol Central Library

Architect Charles Holden built the central library in the Tudor Revival style, and opened in 1906, on the south side of College Green, Bristol.


Bridgwater Public Library

The library is a traditional Carnegie type building dating from 1906, with a more modern extension, and was extensively refurbished in 2004. It is close to the town centre, near Blake Gardens.


Taunton Public Library

A modern, large and well designed library in a good central location for the county town of Taunton, with a recently refurbished cafe. The building houses substantial collections of adult and children’s books as well as audio visual services.

It is worth exploring your local area for the history and culture embedded in your local library.
