The public library is an imaginatively designed and finely detailed public library, including linked former librarian's house, of 1903-5 by Barrowcliff and Allcock of Loughborough. It is in an exuberant Baroque style, with the house to rear in Vernacular Revival style. The main range has an octagonal pyramidal roof and the elaborate front has much terracotta decoration and ornamental turrets at the corners. Inside the main space survives unaltered and has an octagonal domed ceiling with plasterwork ribs, thermal windows with Art Nouveau style coloured glass and a huge central octagonal skylight with similar glass.
