Ashmore Park library has re-opened after work was undertaken to repair damage caused by floodingÂ almost 3 weeks ago.
Karen Lees, City Librarian, said: â€œI 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.
â€œThe 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.
â€œInitially we will be operating a limited service â€“ 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.
â€œHowever, we are pleased to report that the afternoon of love poetry by local poets to celebrate St Valentineâ€™s Day on Saturday February 13, will be going ahead as planned. All are welcome to this free event, which runs from 2pmâ€“4pm.â€
She added: â€œWe apologise again for any inconvenience that the libraryâ€™s temporary closure has caused.â€
