Catshill Community Library Opens

Catshill Community Library opened in its new location at Catshill Middle school on Tuesday, April 16.

View photographs from the opening of the new Catshill Community Library.

The old library in Barley Mow Lane closed it's doors on Friday 12th April and staff and volunteers have moved stock to the new location at The Community Room at the Middle School in Meadow Road. This project has been made possible by the Library and Learning Service working closely with the school, local member and Parish Council and with local volunteers who will be providing excellent customer support to help sustain this service in the heart of the community.

A large selection of up to date stock has been carefully selected including children and young peoples books selected by the children at the school on a visit to our suppliers. Facilities are much improved with toilets and a hot drinks vending machine. The room is bright and provides a calm and inspirational environment to use computers, select your books and DVD's, sit quietly and read or study or chat with friendly staff and local volunteers. Free wifi is available. A continuing programme of family friendly events and activities will be run including adult learning classes for personal improvement and pleasure.

The Library is accessed at the far end of the main staff car park and is signed from the main road. There is disabled parking next to the room but we would kindly request visitors use The Meadow car park during school times on the opposite side of the road.

Kathy Kirk, Worcestershire County Council's Libraries and Learning Manager, said

"This is an exciting time of change for Catshill Library. I am sure library users and residents will see the benefits of this brand new community library and continue to enjoy its services."
