  • I remember this library, when it first opened and it was fantastic. Unfortunately the passage of time and the falling of literacy standards in today’s society, has taken its toll on the stock list. Ev...  more »

  • Holywood Arches library is a great spot for families and solo readers a like. The inside is well furnished and feels welcome. A particular highlight is the statue of C.S. Lewis (a local hero) outside.  more »

  • "Bad libraries build collections, good libraries build services, great libraries build communities." R. David Lankes Holywood Arches is a representation of great library in an accessible location for an ever-growing community. Parking is available but dominated by the local medical centre. The entrance is very up-to-date, well maintained, welcoming and a reflection of the interior. As a wheelchair user, access is simple and easy to navigate. Availability to computers and WiFi is an important aspect to the excellent service provided. Staff are always welcoming, friendly and helpful AND available to answer all your enquiries. An extra bonus is that children are encouraged to browse rather than leave. Overall exceptional quality and worthy of a visit. Definitely five stars.
  • Friendly and helpful. A good selection of children's books but not so great for adult books.
  • It's a library. Always good!
  • Nice library. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Friendly staff, child friendly - always nice to have a local library
