A town library will close today (Saturday) to allow for refurbishments that were originally planned for last year.

Shefford library will be closed between February 1 and March 15 while modernisation works are carried out including a new public meeting room, new library layout, an improved children’s area and new lighting and shelving.

Cllr Brian Spurr, Executive Member for Sustainable Communities Services, said: “We are really excited about the plans for Shefford library. We know how popular our libraries are so we are really pleased to be investing in them and improving services for library users.”

While the building is closed a ‘click and collect’ service will be run for people wanting books at Priory House offices in Chicksands.

Members can make requests for books via our online Virtual Library and then simply pick them up from Priory House, Monks Walk, Shefford. You can access the virtual library at www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/libraries
