Refurbished Brierley Hill Library re-opens

Brierley Hill Library has re-opened its doors following a £670,000 refurbishment.

The library’s internal works, new décor and flooring has been organised by Dudley Council and was funded through the UK Government’s Future High Streets Fund.

Residents can now enjoy improved ground floor access, a children’s library and new meeting rooms for community use such as school classes, group sessions and family activities.

The nearby St Michael’s Church hosted a pop-up library throughout the works to enable residents to continue to access a range of books, use library equipment and attend community groups and classes. Annette Templar, GLL’s sector libraries manager for Dudley, said:

“GLL library staff can’t wait to get back into Brierley Hill Library – now impressively refurbished.

“Attractive and accessible buildings are key to getting more customers of all ages through the doors and making full use of the library’s facilities for education, family friendly activities and the sheer joy of reading.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back.”

Councillor Wayne Little added “We know that people use our libraries in a variety of different ways these days.

“As well as having a fantastic selection of books for all readers, young and old, the new library is also a brilliant space where local people can use the computers and take part in the activities which the team here work so hard to put on throughout the year.”

Brierley Hill library is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 6pm, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am to 5pm and Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.
