Uckfield library to be upgraded

People in the Uckfield area are set to benefit from an improved public library.

East Sussex County Council will install self-service machines and upgrade the reception and display areas.

The works were scheduled following the county council’s largest ever survey about what residents wanted from their library services, carried out in 2009.

The refurbishment is part of a county-wide programme to ensure library facilities are up to date and delivering the best value, most efficient service possible.

Three new self-service machines will be installed which will allow library users to borrow, return and renew books and other items.

At the same time, the reception and display areas at the libraries will be upgraded to give a welcoming and modern appearance, and to allow greater display space for books and information.

The work at will start on Monday, January 31, and the library will re-open on Monday, February 7

During the closure people will be able to use any other libraries in East Sussex to renew items, return or borrow books or other stock, get information and book sessions on internet computers.

Alternatively they can call 0345 60 80 195 to renew their loans, or 0345 60 80 196 for enquiries and to book internet sessions at other libraries. Library members can also check their loans, renew and reserve items, and access on-line resources using the e-library at e-library.eastsussex.gov.uk.

Similar work will be carried out at Crowborough and the cost of the work at both libraries will be in the region of £95,000.
