Manchester has a pretty decent library. It has loads of materials, yet there are some issues.
The workers seem to be very obtrusive. Almost as if general browsing is discouraged. They want to know what you are seeking, and when you tell them, they seem to expect you go there. Now.
I will admit they are very polite however, just in your face alot...
They have a variety of internet terminals. Some are express terminals for 15 minutes only, others are able to be used for one hour. Oddly, the express terminals are the slowest ones!
At base, this is a good, but not a great library.
