Carnoustie Library closes today (March 6) to allow for work to begin on an extensive refit and refurbishment programme.

The High Street library will reopen as a new, flexible community space, providing library facilities as well as ACCESS services.

While work is carried out the library services will re-open at Carnoustie Sports Centre on Links Parade from 10am on Friday, March 17.

Meanwhile, the Learning Centre (IT) will take up temporary residence in the town’s ACCESS office.

Information advisor Catrina Chalmers said: “The short-term move to the sport centre will open up the world of leisure and library to our customers, allowing them to get to know the variety of services ANGUSalive offers. I am beyond excited about the investment in our new Library and the services it will bring to the community.”

ACCESS services will continue to be provided from 26 High Street until the revitalised library opens its doors again in autumn 2017.

The ACCESS office will close all day today (Monday) and re-open at 9am on March 7, with Learning Centre (IT) facilities available for use.

When it returns to its High Street home, the Carnoustie library will provide an exciting range of library services and activities, a bright and fun children’s library, fixed and flexible IT, as well as guest Wi-Fi, face-to-face Angus Council customer contact services and community learning activities.

It will have flexible activity spaces for community use and bookable small spaces that can be used in a variety of ways, including group studies or client meetings

There will also be gallery space that can be reserved for professional and community exhibitions, or to host private functions.

A special farewell to the Library was held on Saturday.
