Future plans


The present library was created in 2008 by consolidating three units including the Canon Mackintosh Library and a Diocesan Library. A 1000 volume modern lending library is available mainly to Cathedral and Diocese members, but this contains only easily accessible material, available in almost any religious/public library.
