The temporary library at 37 Richmond Road will close at 4.30pm on Saturday 12 June so that equipment, books and other items can be moved back to the main library.
To help minimise disruption to customers during this short closure, loan dates will be extended so no items are due for return while the temporary library is closed. Items can be returned to any other West Sussex library, or renewed online.
Pre-booked computer sessions are available at all other West Sussex libraries.
A welcoming ground floor Help Desk where you'll be greeted and directed to the area or service you need.
All meetings rooms will have flexible furniture to enable use by a range of services or community groups.
The area for children and families has been custom-designed to provide space for books, reading and play.
Space for books has not been compromised, as every area has been carefully designed.
Free Wi-Fi will be available throughout the building, plus a large number of public computers.
A meeting pod will provide one-to-one space for a range of services.
Work on the new-look Worthing Library is almost complete and will be ready to open to customers at 9am on Tuesday 22 June!
The custom-designed building will bring together West Sussex County Council Registration Services; Children and Family services; Find it Out and Youth Emotional Support services and an enhanced library service, all under one roof.
Residents can look forward to browsing and choosing from a huge selection of new books in a bright, modern and COVID-secure space.
Exciting new facilities will be housed in the fully refurbished library, making it a brand-new hub for residents in the centre of town, including:
- Flexible meeting rooms hosting a wide range of services and community support groups;
- An inclusive Changing Places toilet on the ground floor;
- A private meeting pod, Quiet Zone, study bar and personal study desks, which will allow space for those who prefer to study in quiet, work as a group, or in private;
- A suite of custom-designed Registration rooms with a dedicated, comfortable waiting area;
- A specialist antenatal room for midwifery clinic appointments.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
