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.

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.
