  • Looking at the building from the outside on a nice sunny day and you would think you were in Florence and not Kilmarnock. Library has the very best coffee in all of Ayrshire. Stronger than rocket fuel ffs. The Museum has a whole bunch of stuffed Lions and exotic animals, armour from the 14th century and a replica of an early printing press plus much more.
  • Excellent choice of reading material.a visit to the museum is a must.a variety of exhibits to browse, takes you back to a different era .staff are very helpful and polite ,well worth a visit. the library also has a small cafe .
  • Really impressed with the way the library has changed over the past few years. It is now a lovely place to work, with a good wifi connection, and a nice atmosphere. It’s like working in a café without having to buy a coffee every hour.
  • Lovely little museum
  • Just been to the Pop Art exhibition. Another fantastic opportunity to look at internationally renowned artists in East Ayrshire! Brilliant!
