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.
