i am always impressed by Derry library as it is not just for books or computer use, but is a base for a lot of Derry people to meet and just be with their friends or not to be alone. I use the computers a lot when I could use a computer at home to work because of the sense of community. The staff are also highly professional and very friendly.

We spent a full hour on a trip to a conference. The history of Derry section of the second floor was great. I learned that the high explosive used by the IRA in attacks on police stations often came from Cilonel Khadafi (sp?) in Libya. Many of the IRA attacks did not go well since the British had spies and tipsters within the IRA.

Staff are always friendly and has a wide range of books to borrow, computer room is great albeit the internet crashed sometimes.

Wish they'd keep the "Quiet in the library rule though"

Their collection of materials related to the civil conflict and especially Bloody Sunday is easy accessible. I love libraries in general and this one is notable for its helpful staff, access to computers, printing, etc. Stop at the desk to learn how and what non-residents can use. I regret not spending more time there.

This is a great social group for young babies up to pre school aged children. Two Library staff lead in the Rhymes, songs, dance then they tell a story and children can participate in turning pages, great way to show children how to turn take. Once the singing etc is finished musical instruments are brought out for the children along with a drink and a snack. This is absolutely free and everyone is so friendly a great hour of activity for babies/pre school. We then picked some books to take home to read. The electronic check out is great so easy to use it is just sad that there are very few staff about now. Very clean well kept Library.

This library is marvelous! Upstairs has a wonderful selection of books about the history of the area. Political, religious, industry, and culture of the area. The librarians were more than friendly and helpful!

I only went to the library to use the photocopier
The staff were extremely helpful & asked if I had ever used their photocopier before & if not they would help
A reasonable charge to copy paperwork & privacy
I was amazed to see how many people availed of the library & the surroundings were very pleasant

This was our only internet access on our visit. Sadly it cost one pound for 15 minutes and Facebook took five of those minutes to load. Otherwise it seems like a nice library though.
