Refurb for library to begin next week

Work to improve the Amble library and customer information building in Middleton Street will begin next week and is expected to last until early March.

From Wednesday, a range of improvements will be made to both the exterior and interior of the building to enhance the customer and community experience of the service. A new self-service system will also be introduced.

The work will include essential repairs to the windows and roof and the main space will also be decorated with new lighting and floor coverings.

The layout of the library will be improved by the installation of new electronic doors at the entrance, which will make the foyer more welcoming and fully accessible for wheelchairs.

During the work, the existing service will relocate to the Tourist Information Centre on Queen Street and will be open for business as usual from next Friday.
