BROUGHSHANE Library reopened its doors to the public on Tuesday, May 7 at 10.30am following the recent refurbishment.

The refurbishment includes a bright modern décor with new floor coverings and soft furnishings which blend well into the library’s garden setting along with a new feature customer service desk and computer tables.

The children’s area has got a colourful new makeover with the addition of two woodland inspired wall murals and a stunning feature wall in the adult area depicting the iconic site of Slemish Mountain.

Branch Library Manager Elizabeth Cook said;

“The newly refurbished library provides an attractive and welcoming community hub with a sympathetic colour scheme in keeping with the local village which was crowned UK Village of the Year 2018.

“Our core and regular activities including Rhythm and Rhyme and Knit and Natter will resume the week beginning 21 May and we look forward to welcoming you into what we hope will be a warmly received refurbished library.”

Everyone is encouraged to come along and visit the new look library, join up and find out about the full range of services that are available in Broughshane Library. It is free to become a new member, simply call into the branch bringing along a means of identification (which includes a home address) or sign up online at
