Starting from today (Monday 28 March), the Central Library’s exterior walls and columns are being repainted – the first time since it opened 20 years ago. Although some work will be done out of hours, to minimise the time taken to complete this project, work will need to continue during the day.
During one stage, scaffolding will be erected along the Victoria Street side for 7 weeks. Parking outside the library on Victoria Street will not be available during this time, but the basement park in Harris Street will remain open throughout.
On Thursday and Friday 7 and 8 April, access to the Central Library will be through the doors to the left hand side into the foyer from 9.30am-12.00 and 1.30pm-8.30pm. This is so that the area above the entrance can be repainted. Access will be as usual through the main central doors from noon to 1:30pm.
Thank you for your patience.
