Library to re-open after £500,000 overhaul
11:50am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
PERSHORE Library opens to the public on Monday following a £500,000 overhaul.
The newly refurbished community building, which now houses the library and visitor information centre, will open its doors for the first time between 2.30pm and 4pm on Monday.
It will officially open at 9am the next day.
Some of the changes include a reading and work room on the first floor and a display area for local artists.
Opening times will also remain extended with a late evening opening on Tuesdays and no Thursday closure.
The work has taken place after Pershore Town Council bought the building from Worcestershire County Council in December 2011.
But the project has been a partnership between the town and county council.
Pershore Mayor Councillor Charles Tucker thanked town council clerk Ann Dobbins for her hard work on the project. He said: “Thanks go to Ann. The result is something the town council can be proud of for years to come.”
