  • Passed by there and wondered how it would be in the inside. Stayed for 3 hours. Wonderful building in the Centre of town and great place to loose yourself in a good book.  more »
  • Great old library which is very under used in this digital age. They have a free newspaper library which has been an excellent source of research for me for many years  more »

  • I have come here many times to study however Saturday was the first time that I took a tour of the building. Really interesting, great history and very knowledgeable library staff. Was great to see it so busy in a time when libraries have been closing, so get along and support it! They are hoping to extend within the next few years in order to open up the vast array of archived newspapers and over-sized books that aren't on show at the moment. Will be a great draw for Belfast and should bring people in from far and wide who want to research or are just curious about their local history.
  • Looks nice from the outside but I've never been inside since it seems to be always closed. Please thing about your opening hours.
  • Very helpful
  • A lot of books, but the opening hours are very bad.
