CHIRK’S revamped library will open its doors in just a few weeks, those behind the project have confirmed.
The building is currently undergoing a £120,000 overhaul which Wrexham County Borough Council say is due for completion by the end of March or the beginning of April. An exact date is expected in the near future.
Once completed, the building on Chapel Lane will include a cultural hub for community activities, plus a specially designed children’s library with an exhibition area, an improved range of books and DVDs, new computer equipment and Wi-Fi, plus a spacious garden area.
A temporary library is currently in place at Chirk Parish Hall courtesy of the town council.
Chairman of the council, Jackie Allen, said she looked forward to the transformed building opening, adding: “The council are pleased to be supporting the library in helping them maintain a presence in the town and to provide a much-needed service. People have used it well and I look forward to seeing the library when it returns to its upgraded premises.”
The library was one of eight across Wales to receive Welsh Government funding for the project.
