Leominster Library will undergo a £50k refurbishment from Monday 25 March.

The four-week refurbishment is the first major works since the building was opened in 1993. There will be a refresh to the general decoration, including new shelving and an improved children’s area. Space will be created for more public access PCs, a new gallery space and a section with local publications available for sale.

Library staff have endeavoured to keep a reservation collection and item return service available to customers while the main building is closed to the public for safety reasons.

From Monday 25 March – Saturday 6 April, customers can return books or collect reserved books from the library foyer. From Monday 8 April, the whole site will be closed to the public, but a drop off box will be available to return items. Issued items, such as books and DVDs, will have an extended return date until the building reopens.

Public wifi and computer access will be unavailable for the duration of the works, but will be available at all other Herefordshire Library sites.

Leominster Library will fully reopen to the public on Thursday 25 April.

Customers can reserve items for collection and manage their library account online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/libraries
