Brigg Library and Brigg Local Link will soon be moving to The Angel in the Market Place in Brigg from their current homes in Old Courts Road and at Hewson House respectively.
Together with the forthcoming Heritage Centre they will transform The Angel into a key public building, bringing services right into the centre of Brigg.
The move gives an opportunity to improve the opening hours of both services and customers are being asked for their views on the proposed new hours.
The proposed hours are:
Library Local Link
Monday 9am - 5.30pm 9am - 4.30pm
Tuesday 9am - 5.30pm 9am - 4.30pm
Wednesday 9am - 2.30pm 9am - 4.30pm
Thursday 9am - 5.30pm 9am - 4.30pm
Friday 9am - 5.30pm 9am - 4.30pm
Saturday 9am – 1pm 10am – 12 noon (monthly on Farmers’ Market
The library will open 30 minutes earlier at 9am, will offer after school access four afternoons a week and will be open for an hour and a half more on Wednesdays. Altogether the library will be open for three extra hours a week.
Very few people currently use the Local Link after 4.30pm. Closing at 4.30pm will release time so the Local link can open on a trial basis on Farmers’ Market Saturdays to test take up.
Cllr Carl Sherwood, Cabinet Member for Corporate and Community Services said:
“The move to The Angel will improve the look and feel and the facilities available in both the Local link and the Library. It is also timely for us to look at our opening hours and I urge local people to visit either the library or Local Link now to let us have their views on the proposed new hours”.
