THE LONG wait for the new Bromsgrove Library is finally at an end with the doors due to open on Monday (November 30).

The new premises on Stourbridge Road, the former Parkside School site, will open at 9am, about a month behind schedule, thanks to a £6.9million joint enterprise project between Worcestershire County Council and Bromsgrove District Council.

The new library will include an online service for free e-books, e-magazines and reference sources like Britannica and the OED.

The site will also be used for the Bromsgrove Customer Service Centre, the Registration Service and the JobCentre Plus office.

It will also continue to offer free Internet access, children’s activities, adult learning courses and other regular activities as it is did in the former Stratford Road site.

There are several volunteer opportunities available at the library including becoming a digital champion and helping people get online, unpacking stock, getting involved in various clubs and activities.
