Description

Oakmere Library in Potters Bar was opened in the 1960s. In November 2014 the library was significantly refurbished to create additional public space and to install additional PCs and wi-fi benching. New more flexible shelving also means that the shelving height is more suitable (especially in the children's area) and can be moved to accommodate larger scale events such as author talks and similar community events.
