Readers digest disruption
Holywood Library is closed to the public this week to prepare the internal premises for major refurbishment work set to give the town’s reading quarters a modern new look.
The library reopens next Monday but will provide a reduced service to customers during the refurbishment process because of space constraints. It will, however, retain the normal opening hours.
The library’s branch manager Josephine Quinn said: “I would like to apologise to customers in advance for any disruption that the refurbishment may cause.
“I know that Holywood Library customers are very supportive of the planned changes and the staff will continue to keep customers informed as plans progress. I hope that everyone embraces this exciting new development.
“The renovations will improve the accessibility and layout whilst enhancing the service offered to customers,” said Ms Quinn.
“The investment will provide the local community with a modern |library capable of delivering all of Libraries NI’s services.
“This work, once completed, will strengthen Holywood Library’s |position as a hub for reading, culture, heritage, information and learning.”
For customers who want to avoid disruption, Bangor Carnegie Library and Dundonald Library will be operating as normal.
Opening hours and contact details for these libraries are on this week’s Grapevine.
