Major revamp for West Kirby library
10:54am Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A MAJOR revamp at West Kirby library gets underway next month.
The new-look centre will offer computer training courses in a new and improved ICT suite on the first-floor, along with regular exhibitions and a modernised reference library.
The library will close for around six weeks from Monday, November 18, to allow the extensive work to be carried out.
The One Stop Shop service will remain open throughout, except for two to three days at the end of the period to allow for relocation.
A pop-up library will operate at the Concourse while work is ongoing.
Regular activities like “Knit and Natter”, adult and junior reading groups and the library’s extensive collection of CDs, DVDs and talking-books will be re-housed in the revitalised area.
Councillor Chris Meaden said: “It is very exciting to be able to announce our latest investment in Wirral’s library and One Stop Shop services, which will see a new, substantially modernised facility in West Kirby.
“This is a significant step in our strategy to offer a wide range of services in welcoming, easily-accessible locations.”
The new facility will have two multi-purpose interview rooms, two One Stop Shop desks and a modernised, customer-friendly counter.
Family activities like “Baby Bounce and Rhyme”, reading groups and Christmas craft sessions will continue in other areas of the building while work is underway.
The improvements at West Kirby follow similar schemes in Rock Ferry, Heswall, Eastham and Moreton.
