Denton Library Closes for Move - 6 December 2014
- Denton Library is to relocate to Denton Town Hall as part of a wider programme to reduce the number and costs of Council-owned buildings.
Tameside Council’s priority is to save services over buildings in its challenge to meet £142m Government funding cuts to its budget.
Denton library is moving as part of this strategy and will in fact be going back to its original location as the service started life in this building in 1888. However the space will be completely re-designed to allow delivery of a modern library service.
To enable this work to be done the current library facility will close completely on Saturday 6 December 2014 at 3.00pm and re-open on Monday 5 January 2015 in the town hall.
Users will be able to borrow as many items as they need before the library closes to ensure they are well stocked during the transition period. They will also be able to use any other Tameside Library to return and borrow items.
Executive Member for Health and neighbourhoods Cllr Lynn Travis said: “Our budget is effectively being halved by the Government and, given this financial challenge, our priority has to be saving services over buildings. Denton Library is returning to its historical roots in the town hall but the space will be purpose designed and offer all the latest technologies including ebooks and free wifi.
“We look forward to welcoming people to the new library and thank them for their patience during the transition.”
