Although I will sort of miss the library building, due to it being a big part of my childhood, the shops next to it won't be missed at all! They provide an unpleasant entry to Barnsley!

Can you tell me where the new library is...or will be please? I enjoy visiting Barnsley and have several time used their local study facility.

Many thanks
