The top floor of the magnet houses an extensive theological library of around 16,000 books. The core of the collection is from the libraries of the Community of the Holy Family and there is a wealth of theological material, both academic and popular, new and old, with much to interest any reader or researcher.
The library offers facilities for study as well as a comfortable area for reading.
The entire collection is in the process of being electronically catalogued. Visit www.themagnetlibrary.org.uk to search online. It is a work in progress and is updated regularly to reflect additions to the catalogue.
The library is freely available to all for reference purposes; for details of borrowing rights and how to become a full member of the library, or if you would like to arrange a library visit, please contact Nicole (contact details below).
The library is usually open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (but it is advisable to check before visiting).
Please contact the librarian, Nicole Blakey, with any requests for assistance or information, by telephone on 01424 431489 or by email at librarian.themagnet(at)btconnect.com
