Wimbledon Library Gets A Makeover

New look is unveiled at community day

Wimbledon Library showcased its new improved look and facilities at a community day for residents.

Following a two-month refurbishment Wimbledon Library's makeover has improved the look and feel of the building, to make it more comfortable for library customers.

The building in Wimbledon Hill Road has been redecorated throughout and the refurbishments give additional study space, more space for lap top users to take advantage of free WiFi, extra computers for customers to use and a relaxing seating area at the front of the library. The children's section was treated to a makeover too.

To celebrate the library's new look, the Deputy Mayor of Merton Councillor John Sargeant attended the community day to get a tour of the building and see the improvements that have been made.

The community day gave residents an opportunity to get involved in a range of taster sessions that Merton Libraries run on a regular basis including IT sessions, craft activities and health and fitness events.

Councillor Sargeant, said: "It was a real pleasure to visit Wimbledon Library today and be part of the community day. I admire the improvements which the recent makeover has made to this much-loved building. Well done to everyone involved in the refurbishment."
