New chapter for Warwick Library

By IH 22/02 Updated: 22/02 13:44

A NEW chapter in the history of Warwick Library begins on Monday (February 27).

For the last couple of weeks Warwick has been without a library as the final move got underway to close its former home in Barrack Street and stock its new base in Shire Hall.

The library move is part of a refurbishment programme at Warwickshire County’s Council’s Shire Hall headquarters, which will see a number of changes to the building to maximise the space available for customer services.

In addition to the new library, the refurbishment will also mean the availability of a wider range of registration services - including births and deaths.

These services are co-located alongside other public services already provided by Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire county and Warwick district councils under the Warwickshire Direct brand, together with the Post Office.

Kushal Birla, Warwickshire County Council’s Head of Customer Service, said: “We are excited about our new look, modern library and hope our customers are looking forward to seeing it too.

"The relocation of the library presents the opportunity to develop a modern library, serving the needs of existing and new library customers. Shire Hall will become a real community hub, enabling customers to head to one place for the information and services they need. ”

The opening hours of the new library will mirror those of the other services available from Shire Hall - Monday to Thursday 8am-5.30pm; Friday 8am-5pm; and Saturday 9am-4pm.
