Orton Library will close for a week next month while it gears up to move into a new modern facility.

The old library will close from Friday, July 13 to Thursday, July 19.

Customers are being reassured that no books will be due for return during the closure.

The new facility, adjacent to the Ormiston Bushfield Academy, will open on Friday, July 20.

An official launch will be packed full of events including storytelling, a ‘40 Years On’ display and even a visit from Horrid Henry.

Heather Walton, Library & Customer Services Manager said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the closure.

“However, the wait will be worth it as the new library will be a modern, user-friendly, bright venue with lots happening.”

Should customers want to return items during the closure, a drop-box will be located in the reception area of Bushfield Leisure Centre.

Customers will still be able to renew items remotely either via the Vivacity website or the 24 hour automated telephone service on 08458 505606.

During the closure the nearest library will be Hampton library, in Serpentine Green Shopping Centre.

Customers can also make use of the mobile library which stops at various locations in the Ortons.
