Wollaton Library

Wollaton Library will reopen to the public on Monday (4 March) following its closure for essential maintenance work.  

During this time, Nottingham City Council’s library service worked with Nottingham College lecturers and students to repaint the building and replace the shelving, repurposing some previously used at the old Central Library.

Some of the students involved in the transformation will be joining staff at 10am on Monday to celebrate their hard work and dedication to making this community project such a success. 

Young people studying joinery and painting, along with lecturers from Nottingham College, generously offered their time for free. 

Nigel Hawkins, Head of Culture and Libraries at Nottingham City Council, said:“It’s great to see community projects like this taking place in our libraries. Working together with Nottingham College has been really valuable and has allowed this work to be undertaken to make a real difference to library users in Wollaton.

“The students really have gone above and beyond to enable this to happen. It’s been fantastic to watch them grow in confidence and gel together as a team to manage the work that needed to be completed and resolve any problems that they experienced as the project grew.”
