Millbrook library, opened in 1974, was originally solely a children’s library housed in a temporary building. A small adult section was added in 1982. In 1994 the library moved into nearby vacant shop premises in Cumbrian Way. It was replaced in 2012 by the Millbrook Community library in Mansel Park Pavillion, Evenload Road.
