The doors to Stoke Newington Library will temporarily close while the much loved building gets a mini facelift. 

Improvements will begin on Thursday 4 December and the library will re-open on Friday 2 January. Work will see the adult library re-painted afresh, redesign of the children’s area including removing the old counter area, re-carpeting and new shelving.

The planned work is part of Hackney Council’s continued investment in its library service.This year the Council is investing £50K on these and other improvements carried out earlier in the year.
