PALMER PARK LIBRARY will re-open at 9am on Monday 19th December, following a five week closure for essential maintenance work.
An issue was identified with the plaster in several locations around the library, necessitating its removal and replacement.
The work took approximately 5 weeks, during which time the site was emptied of books due to the nature of the repair work and the dust created.
The work is now completed and the library’s books have been returned.
Councillor Paul Gittings, Reading’s Lead Member for Culture, Sport and Consumer Services, said: “These essential works were needed to ensure the building is fit for purpose. We apologise for any inconvenience for library users, however, I’m delighted to announce the library will re-open to the public on Monday 19th December and it will be business as usual.”
