New Look Library Appears Better Than Ever

3rd March 2010

 

A new layout design at Putnoe Library in Bedford has seen staff work tirelessly to prepare for its launch, and this Friday 5th March at 10 – 11am, there will be a flurry of interest as Cllr Michael Headley and Cllr Barry Huckle will take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion.

A class of children from Putnoe Lower School will also be present on the day, as the young students will have a display of work up in the children's library, for all to view. The libraries I.T section has been reworked in order to develop a more spacious area to work in; the computers have continued to be an extremely popular feature amongst visitors.

Jenny Poad, Head of Libraries said: “So many people walk through our doors, and we want each individual to enjoy the visiting experience in the physical and visual sense. Of course people come for the books and information we provide, but we feel part of our service is to offer a calming atmosphere for customers to be able to read and concentrate in. This new layout creates the feeling of much more space. We have a lovely new counter and the staff worked really hard with both packing and unpacking books and computers for the library’s big day, so there will be a number of subtle changes too, that will all add to the overall mood of the library.”

Cllr Barry Huckle commented: "The new layout design of the library will encourage the residents of Putnoe to come down and take advantage of the invaluable service the library has to offer. I would also like to commend the library staff who have worked tirelessly to prepare for the launch."

Tea and coffee will be served to all customers from 10.00am – 11.00am, so whether you want to visit to simply read a book, pop by to finish your homework, or maybe research your family tree - it should be a great day to do it!
