Benson library closure

Following a structural survey, work has commenced to remove and replace the entire roof structure of the library and we anticipate it will reopen in early 2021 with improved heating and ventilation as well as some interior refurbishment.

During these works, customers are welcome to continue using nearby open libraries where the same services will be available. Don’t forget that you can also access eBooks and eAudiobooks for free.
