Shrewsbury Library is a warm welcoming space where you can enjoy a wide range of books and other reading materials, use the wi-fi, access the computers and scanning facilities for free or just relax in a warm and safe environment for as much time as you wish during opening hours. 

Set in a Grade 1 listed building which once housed Shrewsbury School, Shrewsbury Library has a bronze statue of Charles Darwin, presented to the town in 1897 and a bust of critically acclaimed Shropshire writer, Mary Webb, can be seen in the gardens beside the Library.
