Torquay Library to close temporarily
10:00am Thursday 30th August 2012 in Devon
Torquay Library will be closed to the public during the week beginning Monday 17 September whilst minor building works are carried out.
Cllr Dave Butt, said: "Torbay Council is always looking for new ways to improve the way in which it delivers its services. The upcoming building works are part of our ongoing improvements and will allow the lending staff and reference team to be located together, as opposed to opposite ends of the library as they are now. This will allow our customers to receive a first class service, no matter what their enquiry, from one location.
"We will also be installing a pay and print kiosk allowing visitors to print documents themselves and computers are being relocated from the balcony to the ground floor of the library to provide better access."
He added he was confident that the long-term benefits will far outweigh the short-term inconvenience.
Torquay Library will re-open at 9.30am on Monday 24 September. The libraries in Paignton, Brixham and Churston and the mobile service will be unaffected and return dates for loans from Torquay Library in the run up to the closure will be extended automatically.
