Smart Library Access
This venue is one of Leicestershire Libraries, Smart Libraries. This means that, if your course is scheduled outside of standard library opening hours, you will need to have a ‘smart’ library card to access the building.
How do I get a ‘Smart’ card?
Existing library members who want to make use of smart opening hours need to complete a short induction. This can be done online and will give you instant access to our smart libraries. You will need your library card on-hand when you start the induction. If your library card has expired, you will need to check with your local library to see if your account details need updating before completing the induction/registration process.
You can also contact a smart library to arrange an in-person induction if needed.
NEW library members can register to join the library and set-up smart access once you have received your card. New members need to collect cards in person so you can arrange to complete the smart induction whilst you are on site!
Each classroom is fully equipped with:
- Interactive screens for teaching
- FREE Wifi
- Skinks and cleaning facilities for creative courses
- Fully wheelchair accessible
