MARCH 2018

As March draws to a close the library is almost ready for reopening on Monday 9th April. New self-service machines and public computers have been installed. The Business Pod has been built and is ready to be booked out for meetings. The new Family History Centre is looking good and bookcases are ready for books to be shelved.

All the carpet has been laid on the first and second floors of the library which has been a mammoth task. Just the ground floor to go now, then furniture and books.

Spot the difference! The painters and electricians have been in since January giving the library a fresh lick of paint and some much needed additional electric points.

The Book Return, affectionately known as the 'Egg' to library staff, has now been dismantled just before the builders take a break for Christmas.

We found some hidden stairs while the builders were removing the customer services desk on the ground floor of Sutton Central Library.

We're developing a welcoming, modern space for reading, learning, culture, arts & heritage. We will be closed from November 2017 until Spring 2018. Whilst the library is closed you can still visit our 7 other libraries in the London Borough of Sutton. You can renew your books online here or with our Sutton Libraries App (Apple / Android). Further updates will be available throughout the winter using Twitter and Facebook.

Room hire will not be available while the library is closed.
