Blackness Library access and other improvement work begins

The long-awaited improvement works to Blackness Library started on Monday.  The substantive part of these will, for the first time, give disabled access to the upstairs meeting rooms and there are several other improvements planned as part of the project.  

The City Architect has advised me:

"Construction worked commenced on Monday 11th February and will run to 19th August (28 week construction programme as advised by Construction Services).

The closure period as currently identified, is 10th June - 15th July (6 weeks)."

I have sought details from the Director of Leisure and Communities regarding alternative library arrangements and arrangements for groups who use the library meeting rooms - during the time the library has to be completely closed for the 6 week period in June and July.
