More great news for local bookworms and library lovers as Notting Hill Library fully reopens its doors today after being flooded back in 2008 resulting in most of the building being closed off.
The Grade II listed building went under a £250,000 refurbishment to restore it to its former glory – including £90,000 spent on replacing the ceiling, a restock in books and installing self-service technology like the ones rolled across the Borough's other libraries.
Its revival will be marked with a visit from renowned children's author Shirley Hughes, who will meet and greet with students from Fox Primary School before talking about the importance of libraries to locals and journalists later this evening.
The return of Notting Hill
Library is one of many positive news stories emerging in a time when the Government are imposing cuts on libraries and their services nationwide.
