Armadale Library Extension
A new space will open up at Armadale library expanding our existing areas. Focusing on BYO devices and group work spaces, this new area will give you more opportunities for working outside of the office. Impromptu meeting areas will allow you to display presentations, or work collectively on documents. Our two new meeting rooms offer space to meet more formally.

In addition to this new working space the library will also be offering high end audio and video equipment to use in our meeting rooms. Need to record an audio presentation or instructional video? You can book our meeting rooms with a range of AV equipment. Regular training sessions will be on offer to help you become more familiar with how this equipment works and how it might be of use. The library staff look forward to seeing you working and relaxing in our new space.
This new space will open in June.
