The construction of Wednesfield’s new £2.3 million community library is now well under way, as you can see from the aerial shot above. The building which is on the new Wednesfield link on Well Lane next to Sainsbury’s is due to open in 2010 and promises to be an excellent new resource for the local community.

The Designing Libraries website has lots of information about the project including photos of what the finished building will look like, get a sneak peak here.

More about the library:

The building is designed to be fun and exciting for people of all ages to learn. It is a steel framed angular building with few straight lines externally. Timber clad, with coloured rendered, and zinc cladding to the roof, externally, with glazed curtain walling internally. The building is on three floors housing the library, offices and learning centre on ground and first floor.

In addition Wednesfield Community Association has a Community Hall and Lounge on the ground and first floor, and the local Neighbourhood Team has office space on a third tower floor. The building will be fully accessible with two lifts, and disabled parking bays. It is located on a newly opened pedestrian piazza with fountains, performance and seating areas, linking the traditional Wednesfield village with the newly opened retail park.

Co-founder of WV11.co.uk. I live in Wednesfield and am involved in various community groups and associations. I build websites and develop digital marketing strategies for a living. When not writing for WV11 or attending meetings I play drums in my band Arbor Lights. I think Wednesfield is a great place, with a great sense of community and it isn't given the credit it deserves. Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
