Library’s on the move to the Angel

BRIGG’S new library is scheduled to open on Monday, May 21 and will be fully functioning from that date.

The library is moving from its present location on Old Courts Road adjacent to the main town centre car park, to be part of the redeveloped Angel Suite.

The library will be on the ground floor in the Angel and the building will also house the new heritage centre and the North Lincolnshire Council Link Office.

The refurbishment of the Angel to accommodate the new £300,000 development is already under way, with the courtyard now closed to the general public.

The initial part of the project will see the development of the large open space adjoining the Angel Courtyard to house the Brigg Plankboat and other items of historical local significance.

A further development could see a cafe as part of the heritage centre/library area.

The Citizens Advice Outreach Service of the council will also be located in the complex.

The library will set the pace alongside ‘Heritage Brigg’ from this spring, but plans for a later development phase are for the Angel’s first floor to be used for community education and school research facilities.
