Closed it's doors for the last time today. All the buildings on the site are being demolished and a new health centre is to be built there over the next eighteen months, which will incorporate a library.
I doubt it will be the same size as the current one though and, if other library refurbishments are anything to go by, it won't carry the same number of books as previously. I'll be sorry to see it go as I visit there a couple of times a week and always found it really quiet. Over forty years ago I went there after work every night to study for a trade qualification and in those days libraries were open till 9pm for just such a purpose. What a loss that arrangement was.
