Improvement work begins in February

MAJOR improvement work to Sidcup Library will see it close from 5.30pm on Friday, February 20, until 10am on March 9.

The works will see it re-open with a completely new layout, a dedicated IT Suite, a larger children’s library, an extended meeting room and study desks with power for laptops and tablets.

Cllr Alex Sawyer, cabinet member for Community Safety and Leisure, said; “These works are being carried out as part of our commitment to deliver on our new Library Strategy by ensuring our core libraries are exciting and inspirational places in local communities.

“The works will make this popular library even better and I encourage all local residents to make a visit to Sidcup Library when it re-opens.

“We are particularly pleased during this difficult financial climate that the improvement works have come at no cost to the tax payer.”

During the works all items borrowed from Sidcup Library can be returned to any Bexley Library, renewed by telephone on 020 8303 7777 or online at
