Bexhill library closure extended by eight days

BEXHILL library, Western Road, closes its doors Monday April 8 to Tuesday April 16 to allow a major refurbishment programme to be completed.

The closure is necessary so that building works, including the removal of steel props and repairs to the flooring and ceiling tiles, can be completed as safely and quickly as possible. The library’s first floor has been completely redecorated, new lighting and furniture installed and some interior walls removed to create a bright, open space. This the second phase of an East Sussex County Council programme which saw the ground floor refurbished in 2008. Wi-Fi internet access will be available throughout the library for the first time; new laptop points and self-service units have also been installed. Loan periods have been extended until after the library fully reopens on April 17.
