Exeter Central Library reopens after £4m revamp
One of Devon's main libraries has reopened after a multimillion-pound facelift.
The £4m scheme at Exeter Central Library has taken about 18 months to complete.
The refit, which was funded from the sale of Exeter Airport, includes a new foyer, cafe, larger children's section and thousands of new books.
It also features a model of a stack of books, created by three sculptors including Will Shakspeare.
Mark Collcutt and Matt Dingle also helped build the sculpture.
Mr Shakspeare said: "We wanted to produce something that people smiled at when they walked in.
"All the books have a very precise and very important connection to Exeter library."
An additional entrance in Rougemont Gardens to improve connections with the museum, arts centre and castle in the city's cultural quarter has also been created.
