Basingstoke Discovery Centre

Basingstoke Discovery Centre is part of a new generation of libraries, located in the centre of Basingstoke. It is a vibrant community hub open to everyone, free to access and free to join.
We offer a wide range of services, including a large selection of books, audiobooks and magazines to borrow and eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines to download. We have free Public IT and free WiFi, with printing, scanning and photocopying available.
There is an exciting programme of events, including ‘Meet the Author’ sessions, talks, courses and workshops – from iPads to papercraft, felting to willow weaving. In addition, we have a host of regular events such as Rhymetime (one in Spanish too!), Story time, Code Club, Board Games and Construction Club for children; while adults can enjoy Knit and Knatter, Colouring, Reading Groups and Creative Writing Groups - to name just a few.
There are also a number of rooms to hire and volunteering opportunities.
With a coffee shop too, it’s a great space to come and relax and enjoy all we have to offer.
