Spectacular images have been released of how Bolton central library is set to look after a £3.7M refurbishment. Bolton Council has revealed the concept images of the new building, which will be closed for the next 12 months as work progresses.

The refurbishment will include a café, expansion and upgrade of the children’s area, improved social spaces, updated digital facilities and the addition of a mezzanine floor.

A temporary library at the former New Look unit in Crompton Place will open on Monday, September 26. Bolton Council said the designs of the new library focus on the priorities of the customers’ needs including digital facilities, education and employment information, cultural and creative activities and health and wellbeing.

The council said book borrowing and promoting reading remains a core priority of the library, however the refurbishment will help to change how communities use libraries, such as taking part in creative activities, accessing the internet and using digital equipment.
