Ashmore Park library reopens (updated)

Ashmore Park library has re-opened after work was undertaken to repair damage caused by flooding almost 3 weeks ago.

Karen Lees, City Librarian, said: “I was astounded by the extent of the damage when I first visited Ashmore Park Library but the people concerned have worked tirelessly to get the library open again for the local community to enjoy.

“The ceiling tiles haven’t been replaced yet, but the whole area has been tidied up and made safe, dry and warm for our staff and borrowers.

“Initially we will be operating a limited service – people will be able to borrow and return books as usual but the PCs which can be used by members of the public will not be immediately available.

“However, we are pleased to report that the afternoon of love poetry by local poets to celebrate St Valentine’s Day on Saturday February 13, will be going ahead as planned. All are welcome to this free event, which runs from 2pm–4pm.”

She added: “We apologise again for any inconvenience that the library’s temporary closure has caused.”
