Whitton Library REVAMPED and Re-Opened

 Whitton Library re-opened its doors today after it received a new transformational refurbishment showcasing the Conservative-led council's continuing belief in the role of libraries in today's society.

The Library had been closed since January so that essential repair works and improvements could take place and bring about the stunning new look and installation of new facilities. Work includes:
  • Roof repairs
  • Replacement of the ceiling
  • New lighting
  • Fully accessible entrance door
  • New shelving
  • Display units
  • Study area
  • Space for activities and events

A new and improved makeover has been provided in the Children's section adding a much brighter and enticing ambience and includes a new Story Wall with a wonderful woodland theme.

The library reopened its doors (Tuesday) at 9.30am. 

Cllr Gareth Elliott said:

"The refurbishment of Whitton is a wonderful example of this conservative council's continuing investment in our libraries. It is a wonderful space for all to enjoy and mixes the modern with the traditional and provides areas to work. Whitton has a wonderful gem in its library and very happy with its upgrade."


Cllr Grant Healy said:

"'Awesome refurbishment, wonderful use of space, and all the facilities needed in a modern library. The best library got better!"
