Did you know that Wrexham Library is the Number 1 Library in North Wales with over 100,000 visitors and virtual visitors each year!
Last year it also hosted 479 events that were attended by over 8,000 people.
Unfortunately, this well used and well loved facility needs a new roof and works will start in September to make sure it has a roof that will last into the foreseeable future to make sure all those visitors and staff stay warm and dry.
The timetable for Wrexham Library roof works is as follows:
- Saturday 9 September – contractors move in to establish their site compound and build the crash decks below the 2 sky lights
- Saturday 9 September – Wrexham Library Foyer Open, the rest of the building will be closed as due to the scaffolding being installed there will be access to the main library but customers can use their own devices in the foyer and access free wifi
- 18 September – work to start on the roof
- Estimated end date mid to late December 2023
The works have been funded from the planned council Capital Budget and will ensure the long term future of this facility in the heart of Wrexham.
During the works all stock will be available for the public.
Cllr Beverley Parry Jones, Lead Member for Corporate Services, said, “We ask all our users to bear with us as there will be some disruption and noise associated with these long overdue building works.
“Staff will be on hand if you need assistance and I thank them and all visitors for their patience during this time.
“Please be assured we will do everything we can to minimise disruption.”
Don’t forget, if you can’t visit the library in person you can up to 10 books from Borrow Box and you can read more about that here ‘No Queue’ Titles from BorrowBox
