Central Library preparing to welcome visitors again

Stockport’s Central Library is gearing up to reopen, subject to the national easing of social distancing measures which are planned for later this month.

The library has been closed since March last year, with some library services being offered as a temporary measure at One Stockport Hub in Merseyway. The Hub has proved to be extremely popular and will continue to operate as a cultural and community space once Central Library reopens.

Cllr David Sedgwick, Cabinet Member for Citizen Focus and Engagement at Stockport Council, said: “I’m pleased that we can start to implement our plans to get Central Library up and running again. I know that our library service has proved to be invaluable during lockdown and I thank you for bearing with us during the temporary closure.

“Once the government has confirmed details of the next stage of the roadmap, we will have a clearer picture on our reopening plans and will be able to update further.”
