Melville Library

Melville Library provides quiet areas for studying, as well as common areas for collaboration. We have computers for patrons to access the internet, use for personal and professional reasons like creating a CV, sending email and to access our electronic books on overdrive. The library is located inside the beautiful Melville Boulevard Shopping center and provides a safe and study conducive environment. Most of our regular patrons are students due to our close proximity to local Universities and Schools. Patrons use the library to do research, group work, and study. We also have a variety of programmes such as Story Time and allow for business workshops. Every month our library staff makes efforts to visit people with disabilities and empart knowledge while reading them stories.
