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.

Sutton Central Library is now closed and the packers and builders are in.
The library is being cleared of furniture, equipment and books have been boxed up and put into storage while the refurbishment begins.
