  • The previous library building on this site was an concrete eyesore, part of a 60s redevelopment of this block which included the pearl further up and princess square an ugly precinct style shopping square. The whole area is long past its sell by date and should be gone. This library has been rebuilt and its excellent. It features a spectacular atrium entrance with glass lifts to the six floors and a viewing box overhanging the building which could have been a mistake, but this one allows views up to the monument. This library and the laing art gallery over the road are the main attractions in this area.
  • The Newcastle Library is a very good place for anyone who wants to go and learn or just simply have some peace and quiet. The library is 6 floors and contains 1000's of books available. The library also provides useful tools for those who are trying to research the archives for the history of Newcastle or for even their own heritage and ancestry. The only issues I found were some of the staff were a little impolite and not the most easy to approach. I recommend you also reserve a computer in advance as the computers were all in use and when I got a computer it automatically logged me out because somebody had quickly made a reservation online.
  • A huge city centre library. Helpful staff the place is nice and clean and it has its own cafe on site, slightly expensive for a council building.
  • Wonderful friendly staff, great books, calm atmosphere ... Exactly how a library should be. Just a shame the the opening hours are becoming shorter and shorter!
  • Amazing space, great book collection, excellent activities for all, really worth a visit. Staff is amazingly helpful.
