  • Lovely museum with lots of history on the local area
  • The library has changed a bit! I Came here after 17 years. No more cinema .. etc. Wow! They have a muesuem/exhibition. With lots of information. Applied for a library card after 10/15 years. The new card is bizzare and the systems have changed. . Everything online/computer type system.. The staff aren't that helpful. I don't know the process of taking book out and I didn't want to ask. But I've heard it's done on computer system . I just got a library card . The last time I had a library card was as a child (which I lost).. it was made of good material back then or a hard plastic.. now it's so different. I can't wait to find out about the history of Brent and the UK! and much more. There's toilet facilities on ground floor and 2nd floor which is great. The only thing that ruins the library is the amount of people being noisy or glued to their mobile phones or hanging around. 2nd/3rd floor much quieter.
