Next week will be a time of intense demolition as part of the Library building is removed and clearing of the site occurs.

As a result, Library hours will be amended and liable to change at short notice. This is to ensure the comfort and safety of Library users and staff as the builders manage this difficult stage of the project. After this phase, anticipated disruptions should be minimal.

At this stage for the period Wednesday April 26th to Thursday May 11th opening hours will be:

Wednesday 26th to Friday 28th April Library opening hours 4 – 8pm.

Library hours commencing Monday 1st May:

•Monday to Friday - Open 4-8pm only.

•Saturdays - Open 9am-1pm as usual.

Friday 12th May - Normal Library opening hours resume.


Library staff will be available daily from 9am in the sea container.  

Returns can be dropped off at any time, reservations can be collected and a limited borrowing service will be available.

Our Rhyme-time and Story-time programs will be held in the sea container during this period as well.

We will keep you posted of the exact details of amended opening hours as construction progresses via our website, social media, information posters and onsite staff.
