New look for town’s library

ALFRETON Library is set to re-open with a brand new look following a £120,000 refurbishment.

The library boasts a new reception area, counter and two new self-service terminals, designed to speed up service and help reduce queues, as well as lots of new stock, a new heating system and electrics.

The library was closed for 13 weeks and will re-open at 9am on Tuesday, June 28, when people are invited to come and see the changes for themselves.

Cllr Andrew Lewer said: “The work is part of our commitment to improving the lives of local people and I hope people will come and see the improvements, especially those who perhaps have not visited for a while. This is one of our busiest libraries and as well as books there is free wi-fi for those with their own laptops or iPhones, computers with free access to the internet, a local studies sections and training facilities.”
