The Central Library is now open as normal, visitors will still be able to sign Books of Condolence for Her Majesty The Queen.

During 2022 Central Library is undergoing a major £1.8m building works programme.
Since January, scaffolding has been put up around the building to allow our contractors to repair parts of our roof, windows, and replace any stonework which is in poor condition. Work inside the building includes upgrades to our electrical system, lighting, and fire safety equipment.
