Bala Library To Temporarily Relocate
Following the confirmation that Gwynedd Council’s Library Service has secured a £120,000 grant from Welsh Government to renovate the Bro Tegid Library in Y Bala, the library will be temporarily relocated to part of the Penllyn Leisure Centre in the town until the upgrading work is completed.
Whilst work to carry out improvements to Bala Library’s present location at Ysgol y Berwyn will be completed during the coming months, the library will open its doors at its temporary home at the Penllyn Leisure Centre on 12 July. There will be no changes to the library’s usual opening hours following its relocation to its temporary home.
The library will close on Saturday, 1 July with work to be done to move stock and materials before the library’s reopening at its temporary location on Tuesday, 12 July.
Councillor Ioan Thomas, Cabinet Member for Gwynedd Council Libraries said:
“This is an exciting period, with work about to get underway to implement improvements to Bala’s library. The improvements will include providing a flexible space for collections and activities, a more attractive children’s section, a meeting room for reading groups, information sessions and new computer equipment for users.”
“I would like to thank the library users in advance for their cooperation during the renovation period. Once the work has been completed, I am confident that the library will provide enhanced provision and will prove to be a welcome and friendly location for all who visit.”
It is expected that the renovation work will take some months to be completed and the Council will promote the service when the library moves back to its permanent home during Spring 2017.
