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.
