Derby Central Library reopens after five weeks

Derby Central Library is set to reopen after five weeks, following a programme of improvements.

The work, which cost £100,000 to complete, includes better access for wheelchair users, improved lighting and new shelving.

The library will be officially reopened by the Mayor of Derby, Councillor Amar Nath, on Monday 21 March at 1200 GMT.

Derby City Councillor Alan Grimadell thanked residents for their patience while the work took place.

"The improvements to Central Library will freshen up the appearance for visitors, while the introduction of greater wheelchair accessibility will enable a larger proportion of Derby residents to access the facilities," said Mr Grimadell, cabinet member for leisure and culture.
