The popular library will re-open with a brand new fully accessible entrance situated on Pinfold Road. This new glass atrium has been built to provide lift access to both the library floors and the new community centre.

  • Improved facilities, including more books, computers and self-service machines.
  • A more welcoming space to sit and work or read in. The reading hall has been transformed to uncover its original features and the reading garden has been refurbished.
  • New read-aloud and magnification technology to help people who are dyslexic, blind or visually impaired to have better access to the resources on offer.
  • Community meeting rooms and hot desk space for local business people.
  • Cultural and community centre.
