Yesterday evening I decided after hearing the rubbish weather forecast for today that I would  have a quick sandwich then stroll into town to take in a couple of hours of the Annual Light Night Event, before heading back home for my tea.
My first stop just had to be the new Central Libraries as it was the first day of opening following its two and a half year. £50 million rebuid.  
I cannot adequately describe  here the Wow factor on entering it..You must look yourself very soon.. It was fantastic, the main Spiral staircase routing through all four floors of the building right the way up to the Amazing open Roof terrace is out of this world and no photograph can do it justice, you have to be standing there looking up or down it to appreciate its effect..Superb !!!!
The rest of the library is also jaw dropping , not just the modern layout its information and books available but the Older original restored parts make you stand there and be enthralled by its magnificence. The Oak Room. The Picton and The Hornby Libraries are Eye boggling in their beauty . They presently have on display all kinds of articles relating to our past heritage and you can stand looking at a glass case where 18 inches in front of your very eyes is the original Charter given by Kinng John to the Town in 1207. this is widely recognised as the charter that began our transition from a small non-descricpt village into the The Second city of the British Empire in Victorian times,,,, I was so enticed by the place that when i looked at my watch it was 9:45pm and the place was still buzzing..
Sadly i had to make my way home and wasnt able to see any of the other events on offer that night, but will return to the event next year.. On the way out i caught a minute or two of the lazer light show on the exterior of the building and it too was absolutelty superb..Congratulations on all who were involved in orgnising last nights events you did Great.
I will put some pics up later.

Thanks Mr Picton.


Nice to see the old revolving doors are still there, not in use now, but at least they kept them.
