About the Library

It is a large, busy library in the centre of the town on Granby Street, opposite Queen's Park. There is a ramp at the front of the building and the main part of the library is on one level, with a ramp or steps up to the children's area.
The library has wide aisles and disabled parking space is available in the nearby town car park.
The library has recently been refurbished, and there are now 2 brand new class rooms in our learning suite, a newly refurbished  meeting room and ICT Suite all with smart boards for hire, at very competitive rates. Take a tour of the library here to see these facilities. There is also further information available on Loughborough Library Google Local page.
