Major improvements to popular library

9:16am - 16 June 2022

A popular library closes to the public tomorrow (Saturday) so major refurbishment work can begin.

Clevedon Library, in Old Church Road, will close temporarily to customers tomorrow and re-open in early October.

The improvement work will enable it to stay in its current location for at least another decade and help it develop as an active hub for the community.

It will have a more flexible space with facilities for businesses, organisations and groups to meet, and the building itself is being made greener with upgrades to the heating system, insulation and lighting.

It’s also being made more accessible for all users.

While the building is closed, members can still use the ‘call and collect’ service.

Reserve items through Libraries West, email or call 01934 426 020.

Pre-ordered items can then be collected from the annex in the library grounds (to the left of the front door).

Books won’t be due back until October but you can use the returns box if you prefer.

Children’s activities such as Story time, Rhymetime and the Summer Reading Challenge will take place on Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons in St John’s Church Hall next door on Hillside Road.

You can also use your library card in any other North Somerset library, or get free eBooks and eAudiobooks from Libraries West.

The library will have the same staffed opening hours when it re-opens in October but there will also be the opportunity to use Extended Access and use it for longer in the evenings and weekends.
