Barrow Library to close for revamp
Last updated at 11:17, Tuesday, 18 February 2014
BARROW Library is to close for ten days later this month for refurbishment.
The library will be closed on Sunday 23 February and reopen - fully fitted - on Wednesday 5 March.
The work is part of Cumbria County Council’s plan to improve the county’s libraries.
The library, which first opened in 1922, was closed for four days in late January and is operating a temporary part-time service from the neighbouring children's library with access from Duke Street rather than Ramsden Square.
The temporary service houses a limited selection of books and media, public computers, and photocopier, as well as an enquiry service for the library and bus pass applications.

Looking forward to it! We may not be able to match those at Liverpool or Birmingham but Barrow needs a super modern library.
