Libraries a priority for Harrow
Fri 6 May 2016, 10:10 am
Stanmore Library has re-opened following a month-long refurbishment programme.
It is the first to be completed as part of Harrow Council’s library refurbishment programme.
A gallery, studio and study space have been introduced. The library has also been redecorated, with new flooring, lighting, signage, furniture and bookshelves.
Study areas feature areas for laptops, tablets, a studio, meeting room and a children’s library.
Councillor Sue Anderson, portfolio holder for community, culture and resident engagement, said: “Firstly I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the redesign and refurbishment of the library. A year ago you would have seen a library that was worn out and in need of an upgrade.
“Stanmore Library is now a bright and attractive place to relax, learn, work and study. It’s now fit for the 21st Century, and I hope that the local community enjoy the new and upgraded facilities.”
