Description

Description

The ground floor has been refurbished and there have been partial works to the first floor, including self-service technology for books, magazines, audio books and all other item borrowing. A new accessible toilet has been installed on the ground floor and a new entrance built as customers could previously access the library only via The Harlington Centre. The ground floor refurbishment also includes a brand new ‘Makery’ space kitted out with IT, coding tools and equipment to help customers develop new skills which will make them more digitally aware and confident in using new technology. The Makery offers the environment and facilities for technical play and digital application, with courses to launch in the near future for curious minds young and old.
