Following a comprehensive building refurbishment, Cardross Library will reopen to the public at 2pm on Wednesday 1 May.
Work on the re-fit of the shelving will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday 23 and 24 April, followed by the re-stocking of library books and other items on Monday and Tuesday 29 and 30 April in preparation for the re-opening. There will be an official re-opening ceremony at a date to be announced.
Lead Councillor for Community, Culture and Strategic Housing George Freeman said
‘These improvements are part of the council’s commitment to maintaining and improving services and strengthening our communities. I would like to thank all of the library’s regular users for their patience during the renovations. I hope that they will enjoy the improved facilities and encourage their family and friends to make use of the improved service.’
While the refurbishment work was being carried out, the public have been able to use the library services and other facilities in the Helensburgh Library (or any other library in Argyll and Bute). It has also been possible to renew books, borrow eBooks and consult online reference sources via the council website. No fines have been applied during the closure period, and fines will be waived for a month after the library reopens.
Regular events at the library include Bookbug Sessions, which take place twice during each school term, Fun First Fable Tales which are on the second Thursday of each month, and Cardross Reading Group meets at the library on the first Tuesday of every month.
