SUMMER READING CHALLENGE ENDS - 12th September ! 


REFURBISHMENT - Update

The much anticipated work to replace the old porch and improve both access and facilities is now complete.  

The old porch has been removed and the bigger and better replacement porch contains a new disabled toilet, improved access doors, an exhibition space and room for push chairs. Improved insulation and LED lights will reduce running costs year on year, make the building more eco friendly and a more pleasant environment for reading, working, learning and socialising.

The Library Volunteers have also sourced grant funding for a new reception desk, shelving and updates to the children's area. 

The Town Council and the Library Volunteers look forward to welcoming you back to the Hub.
