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. 


Other services include photocopying and printing services and with events for all ages such as Rhymetime, Storytime, Books Aloud, Craft and Chatter, digital support, historical tours, writing groups and learning at the library sessions, there’s something for everyone. 


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.
