Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you think of the library. I'm glad you love the library in general!  

In terms of finding space in the Library, we're a popular place, and seats can be hard to find at times.  You may find our Library Occupation Widget useful - it lets you know how many people are in the Library at any one time, so you can check before you arrive to see how busy we are!  Sometimes finding seats can be a challenge because people have left their belongings at a desk when they've gone away for a while, sometimes a long while.  We're thinking of what we can do to alleviate this problem, but ideally we'd prefer if people took their belongings with them in order to ensure the study spaces we have are available for use.  We are also hoping to increase the number of spaces with power sockets over time.  If you're looking for a PC, there are other spaces within the University you can use as well.

I'm sorry you don't like the smell of the soap we use - I don't think it's been commented on before now. Unfortunately I think that it would be a challenge to find a scent that everyone liked, and the scent does seem to fade quite quickly, so I hope it doesn't distract you too much.

Thanks again for your comments and suggestions.
