A LIBRARY is due to move to a 'state of the art' building with wireless internet access and teenage area.

Erith Library is due to open in Erith High Street next Saturday replacing an old library in Walnut Tree Road.

The library will include wi-fi access, a children's library, a teenage area, and a meeting room that can be booked by community groups, as well as new books.

Bexley councillor for Leisure, Arts & Tourism,Peter Catterall, said the new library would strive to have something to offer everyone.

He added: "It is the latest stage in a continuing programme of investment to develop a network of modern library services."

The future of the Carnegie building has yet to be decided and will be affected by the development of the Erith Western Gateway regeneration plans.

Erith Library will be open Mondays to Saturdays, and will open until 8pm on Tuesdays.
