are delighted to open to doors of Lisburn Road Library to our customers after a
wait of nearly a year. It offers a comfortable place to relax and escape and we
hope that people appreciate this modern space with its unique features. We have
a meeting room which local organisations can hire and we will be able to run
events which we were unable to do before due to lack of space. We welcome
everyone to call in and see the exciting improvements, to find out about the services
that are available and to join the library.”
