Enlighten your children's imagination

Nurture and grow your child's imagination in the private children's library. A dedicated space just for young readers, with shelves of books to entertain and inform young minds.

Study, apply and print

Whatever you are studying, Limelight's Library has a suite of P.C.'s that members can use. If you are learning, you can use the P.C.'s to catch up on your course work. Looking for work is mostly done online, so you can use the P.C.'s to update your C.V., apply for jobs and print anything out that you will need for interviews.

If you are new to computers and the online world, speak to staff about sessions designed to get you online.
