Record visits for Bromsgrove Library

Published Monday, 18th January 2016

Visits to the new Bromsgrove Library are the highest they have been for five years.

 

More than 16,000 visits have been recorded at Bromsgrove's new library in its first month of opening. The library has also gained 197 new members.

 

The library, which is now on the site of the old Parkside School, Bromsgrove is a brand new facility with free internet access, regular and holiday children's activities, adult learning courses and a meeting room available for hire.

 

Nicki Hitchcock, Bromsgrove Library Manager said: "We love our new library.  It's so light and airy and is such a great place to work.  But what is really great is that our customers clearly really like it too.  We have had lots of positive feedback, children who don't want to leave and a record number of new members joining.  It is a great start to the new year."

 

Cllr Lucy Hodgson, cabinet member with responsibility for localism and communities said: "This is great news.  We are very lucky to have this new facility which is opening up a number of opportunities for new partnerships and provides the extra space needed to develop some additions to the library programme responding to community needs.

 

"The new library also comes with new opportunities for volunteering with lots of roles on offer. I would really encourage a visit if you haven't already".
