The decorators are in. As the construction work draws to a close at Marylebone Library’s new home in Beaumont Street, pots of paint are being jemmied open, colour charts consulted, and woodwork given a last bit of sanding.
Now where are the plans? Ah yes – orange ceilings, tiger-striped walls and carpets in a purple reworking of the Paisley pattern. Only joking – the colours are chosen to be restful, calming… suitable, in fact, for a library!
The library will close at Council House at close of play on Sunday 11 August, and open in Macintosh House on Wednesday 28 August.
As you can imagine, there will be a few things to be done before the period of closure, and oodles of things to be done while we’re closed. I will keep you posted.
