Central library closed

THE Bristol Central Library will be closed on weekdays for four weeks in March to make some improvements to the historic building and allow construction work to be carried out safely.

The team will use this period to expose and restore the Hayward Lights in the library floor, which were an original feature of the Charles Holden designed building. These will be restored as a key part of the library space for the first time since the 1980s.

This time will also be used to redecorate parts of the first floor and make much needed improvements to the accessible toilet.

Work to convert the basement area into the new Cathedral Primary School will commence from January 2016, and the library will be closed on weekdays between February 29 and March 24.
