Carnegie Library to reopen in February
Work has progressed well at the Carnegie building over the last few months and the ground floor library will reopen to the public in mid-February.
The target is for a phased opening, with the library to be back open from Thursday 15 February 2018.
The council would like to thank residents living nearby for their co-operation and help in ensuring that the works have been able to take place and library users for the patience during the temporary closure.
The library will include:
- Comprehensive book stock, consisting of around 18,000 books, with new stock added regularly
- A children’s library section, with the ever-popular Wriggle & Rhyme weekly Under-5s story and song time
- quiet study space
- IT facilities (with software and keyboards adapted for users with visual impairment available)
- Free wi-fi
- DVDs, e-books, audio books and books in large print, self-service book lending
There will be staff present during all opening hours, with library staff on site for at least two hours per day. During non-librarian hours, experienced customer care staff will be present to assist library users.
The library will initially open for 40 hours per week, and this will increase in Spring/Summer 2018.
