Back in April we were awarded a grant to upgrade our shelving, furniture and a few other pieces. After lots of deliberation the order has been placed and the dates locked in for everything to be delivered and installed. For this to happen the Library will be closed for a week. Absolutely no items will be due for return the week of the closure but the after hours return chute will be open for those wanting to return items. So please ensure that you have all of your reading, listening and viewing materials stocked up on by library closure at midday on Saturday 24 November and be prepared for a fresh new look when we reopen at 10.30am on Tuesday 4 December. Don’t forget that BorrowBox is available 24/7 and is free as part of your membership. Come and see me before the closure if you need help in getting access.
