Today i visited for the first time to get some photocopying done. I was welcomed by one of two members of staff at the door and asked what i needed. i explained, and was advised what i needed to do. I was also told a member of staff inside would help if i needed it. Inside i was amazed how it had changed when i last visited which was years ago. It was welcoming and the lady who helped me with my photocopying was really helpful. I was expecting to pay at least £1 per copy but was amazed it was just 10p! When i left the same lovely lady at the door asked did i get it done ok. Would highly recommend Discovery Centre.
Looking forward to our next online show coming (almost) from the Gosport Discovery Centre! https://facebook.com/events/s/greg-chapman-almost-live-onlin/290436362128296/?ti=icl
We have just been to collect our first ready reads. Excellent service 😊 the children have been looking forward to this since I told them we could get new library books out. Friendly staff on arrival who told us where to go and stand to collect books safely. Will definitely use again. Thank you for working hard to allow us to use our libraries again 🤩
