Mitchell Library

The first phase of Mitchell Library redevelopment has introduced 'Leisure and Lifestyle at the Mitchell'. Included in that is a lending library to complement the long-time non-circulating collection. As well, a smart, open and airy café bar has been added. It is located adjacent to the new rows of computer terminals with internet access and the shimmering floor-to-ceiling windows facing south towards Kent Road. [Not recently visited.]

  • Provides: Free wi-fi

Adam Buxton Rambles…

Comedian Adam Buxton reads from his new book which incorporates rambles on topics including formative cultural influences of the 80s, confrontations on trains, boarding school trauma and David Bowie. He may even answer some very BIG questions. To be honest, that’s unlikely but it should be fun anyway.
