A Teesside library will be transformed in a £1.9m project.
Stockton Library will close on 24 February for the refurbishment and is expected to reopen in the autumn.
The work will include introducing self-service technology, improved reference and study area, a family library suite and cafe.
Stockton Council said there had been a 15% rise in library users in the last year and hoped the revamp would further promote library use.
While it is closed there will be a temporary library in Wellington Square and the open technology service will offer a condensed service at the Green Dragon Studios.
Local history books will be available at Preston Hall Museum and family history resources will be at Thornaby Central Library.
