You can also borrow SmartPass audio CDs to help with English Literature SATs and GCSEs.

Extra Information for Projects
If you need to find out a lot of detailed information on a particular topic, you might want to visit Central Library. There are thousands of specialist books and other resources (such as DVDs) in each section. Subjects include music, local history, literature, sociology, science and business. Most of the material is for reference only and cannot be taken out of the library.
