A refurbishment of a North Somerset library will get underway at the end of April.

Yatton Moor Children’s Centre will move into Yatton Library, in High Street.

The work is being done by North Somerset Council as part of its community access review, which aimed to save £500,000 by 2019.

The refurbishment will include making the upper floor more accessible, and creating new office and meeting spaces.

Improvements will also be made to the lift and new outdoor and indoor play areas will be created.

The library will close on April 29, and has a provisional opening date of August 14.

While the library is closed, the mobile library will stop at Hangstones Pavilion, in Stowey Road, every Thursday morning from 9.30-11am.

The parish council office will also move to Hangstones Pavilion.

When the centre re-opens, it will be called Yatton Library and Children’s Centre.

The children’s centre will open as usual until the end of July.
