The new library opened on July 2 with an extension, double-glazed windows and a relocated entrance door.

There are now three brand new public computers, wi-fi access and soft seating areas. Self-service kiosks have also been installed so customers can borrow, return and renew items themselves.

Councillor Alan McMurray, chairman of North Somerset Council officially re-opened the library.

Councillor Felicity Baker, executive member responsible for libraries, said: “I am delighted with the work that has been carried out on Winscombe Library.

“We made a promise to the local community that we would improve the library at Winscombe and this project has delivered.

“I would like to extend my thanks to local businesses and the community for their support throughout the project and hope they enjoy their newly refurbished library.”
