LETCHWORTH Library will be officially reopened this month, following its closure for refurbishments and improvements in September.
The newly redecorated library will feature a more accessible layout of stock, a new issue system, and enquiry desk, more PCs and Wi-fi facilities for public use, and a ramp to the children's library.
"We are very pleased with the refurbishment work and hope that local people will make the most of the improved facilities," said county council executive member for community safety and culture, Cllr Keith Emsall, who will officially reopen the building on November 26.
"The improvements have been made to equip the library to provide a smarter, faster, 21st century service, but without losing sight of what is valuable about the building as a traditional feature within the local community."
The reopening will also launch the new Our Letchworth website, which has been set up as part of the Herts Memories community archive project. It will enable people to share their stories, memories, photographs, research and observations about life in Letchworth GC.
There will also be artwork on display by schoolchildren from Wilbury School which was produced to celebrate the library's 70th anniversary which was earlier this year.
