A LIBRARY is back up and running after a makeover saw £30,000 invested into the centre.

Visitors were unable to pick up books from Newbury Library for two weeks while it was closed for maintenance.

Nearly five million people have visited the site since it opened in 2000 and the recent project saw a range of upgrades delivered.

Councillor Rick Jones, executive member for Culture, said: "This refurbishment will ensure that Newbury continues to have a library residents can enjoy and be proud of in the years to come.

“The library has seen a number of changes over the years and it is no longer simply a place where people borrow books.

"There has been a significant expansion of digital services including self-service kiosks, an increasing number of online resources and apps for borrowing e-books and e-magazines.”
