Description

Description

The ground floor of Morpeth Library was destroyed when the River Wansbeck flooded the town in September 2008. Following drying out, the layout of the ground floor lending area was reviewed and designs agreed with Opening the Book. The library reopened in March 2009. The upstairs reference library was unaffected.
