Andy McNab to open Brigg Library

BESTSELLING author and former SAS soldier Andy McNab is to open Brigg’s new library.

Andy McNab, thriller writer and former SAS operative, will officially open the library and local link at its new location at The Angel in Brigg on Tuesday June 12.

Andy came into public prominence in 1993, when he published his account of the Special Air Service (SAS) patrol, Bravo Two Zero, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal in 1991. Since then, he has written several further non fiction books and a series of novels.

Coun Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for customer services, sport and leisure at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “It is a real coup to get well known author, Andy McNab to open the library and local link.

“The new premises are much better than the old. It’s more spacious and welcoming – and it brings together both the services under one roof in a more central location.

“We are now open for business as normal at the new location at The Angel. This is your facility, so please pop in and have a look around and meet the staff.

“I’m delighted with the improvements, and I’m confident you will be too.”

The library and local link opened at its new premises for business last week. The move brings together the two services under one roof in a more central location with easy access for all.

The library is more spacious and welcoming with new shelving and some new books. The extra space means that it is now possible to have more events and promotions held at the library.

Also on Tuesday June 12, there will be an opportunity to spend an evening with novelist Christina Jones, who writes bucolic frolics – interesting and romantic goings on in lovely countryside villages.

The local link will continue to host guest surgeries from organisations including Citizen Advice Bureau, North Lincolnshire Homes, Crosby Community Association and the North Lincolnshire Registration Service.

The library’s former home was at the rear of College Yard in Brigg and the local link was at Hewson House.
