I have welcomed feedback from the City Council that the improvements taking place at Blackness Library are on track and it is hoped that the library will re-open around the end of July.
The Library has made a temporary move to Logie and St John's (Cross) Church whilst the last of the improvements at the library, that primarily consists of disabled access facilities to the upstairs meeting and reading rooms being provided for the first time.
The City Council has recently advised me :
“The project at Blackness is still one week ahead of schedule. the lift to the upper floor has arrived and is ready to be installed. The moving back date for the library service is still to be confirmed but we are hopeful it would be at the end of July. The next site meeting is scheduled for the 23rd of July and we may be in a position to confirm a date at that time.”
I am pleased that the library will re-open in the near future and, given the improved meeting room access, am looking forward to the library providing much greater community access in the future.
