Hagley Library will close to customers on Monday 19th February and reopen on Friday 22 February.

The closure will allow essential building work to be carried out to improve the toilet facilities at the library, making them accessible for all customers and to provide baby changing facilities.

The work is jointly funded by Worcestershire County Council and Hagley Parish Council, both collaborating closely on the improvements to the library.

The new facilities, will help make it easier for customers to stay in the library longer, and will also help those who are already attending or would like to attend regular activity sessions at the library such as Bounce and Rhyme, Active Tots, Readers Group and Knit and Natter.

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member for Communities at Worcestershire County Council, said: “We’re really pleased to be working alongside Hagley Parish Council to improve the facilities for our customers at Hagley Library. Ensuring our customers have access to appropriate facilities is a key part of our library experience, and will also hopefully encourage more customers to join groups and make the most of their local library space.”

During the closure, customers will get an extended loan period for returning books. Books can still be returned in the letterbox outside or alternatively books can be returned to any other Worcestershire Library, the nearest to Hagley are Kidderminster, Bromsgrove or Rubery.
