Maida Vale Library reopened yesterday after six and a half weeks of essential building repairs and refurbishment.
While closed we took the opportunity to move the Children’s Library to a brighter, bigger corner and extended our IT provision to 10 adult computers and 3 children’s, enlarged the teenage area and put in laptop bars.
It was redecorated in peppermint green, lilac and purple – do come and have a look!
Everyone worked really hard to get the library ready to open on time: some flooring was still being laid on Tuesday afternoon, and as you can see it was ‘all hands on deck’ right up to the last minute. I’m sure you’ll agree it was all worth it though – and the reaction from the first customers through the doors was very positive indeed!
