BAYSWATER Library will be closed from April 16 to May 26 due to refurbishment works worth $156,000.

The works include the remodelling of the entrance, repainting, replacement of furniture and floor coverings and reconfiguring of network infrastructure.

There will also be space on the ground floor to deliver children’s activities, replacing an area on the top floor that was only accessible by a staircase

Mayor Dan Bull said the refurbishment would have a contemporary and user-friendly layout to enable people to access traditional services and use their mobile devices.

“Our libraries are fast becoming interactive learning hubs and we need to adapt to keep up with changes in technology and the needs of our customers,” he said.

“The Bayswater Library is right on the doorstep of one of the City’s most popular retail strips and its refurbishment forms part of our commitment to the activation of our town centres.”

The library will re-open on May 28.
