Marlow Library is set to reopen its doors at the weekend after a huge revamp.

Following months of extensive work to remodel and refurbish the building, in Institute Road, the public will finally be able to see the new library on Saturday, December 5.

Costing £179,000, the revamp includes improved computer facilities, a new meeting room, self-service technology and loanable tablets.

Artist Kirsty Harris was commissioned to create an “original installation inspired by Marlow’s unique identity”, with a bigger children’s space including a new sensory wall, dubbed a “magical oasis”, where youngsters can study while enjoying “inspirational” surroundings.

Cllr Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire Council’s cabinet member for communities and public health, said: “The refurbishment of Marlow Library has transformed the place into a modern and attractive library.

“I also know that library staff are eagerly looking forward to welcoming customers to the library with the addition of some exciting new features, including a council access point and lots of new books.”

A maximum of 12 visitors will be allowed in the new library to follow social distancing guidelines, with residents urged to book 30-minute time slots to avoid queuing outside.
