Work has been completed on a £2m refurbishment of Nottingham's main library which includes a new service centre for the public.

The city's Central Library complex, on Angel Row, will fully open to the public on Monday.

As part of the redevelopment of the library the ground floor has been totally refurbished to incorporate the city council's customer centre.

It replaces the authority's facility at the Guildhall in Burton Street.

Councillor David Trimble, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and customers for Nottingham City Council, said: "The building has been refurbished to provide better facilities and improve the visitor experience for both library and contact centre customers.

"This project represents significant investment to the library and will be of benefit to both library and contact centre visitors.

"We have created a modern, welcoming and comfortable environment for our citizens and our staff and we appreciate their patience during the work."
