Stockton's Express Library is to shut as the Central Library prepares to reopen after a £1.9m refubishment.

The temporary library in Wellington Square will shut for business on 1 October.

In the month between that closure and the reopening of the Central Library, the public can access services via Green Dragon Studios.

Councillor Ken Dixon said: "We are on track to reopen on 1 November, with work on schedule and on budget."

He said: "Once the refurbishment is complete, residents will be able to call into one central point to access various council services, pay their bills as well as visit the new cafe and library facilities."
