A significant refurbishment of Clare Library, aimed at improving the facility’s offerings for youngsters, will commence next month.

The library, located at The Guildhall in High Street, will be shut to visitors for one week to allow for interior renovations.

Paid for by developer contribution funds and fundraising from the Friends of Clare Library, the work will improve the children’s area and expand the existing storage provision.

Library manager Karla Greenwood said: “We are refurbishing the library to enhance the children’s area and, at the same time, create a more flexible space, with more storage.

“Hopefully, it will enable us to provide a more user-friendly environment, which will also be better for our film club evenings, from which funds raised have gone towards this work.”

The closure will take effect between Monday, June 10, and Tuesday, June 18.

During this time, the library will not be running its weekly baby bounce, top time, tot rock, storytime or craft sessions.

A Suffolk Libraries spokeswoman said: “Suffolk Libraries apologises to customers for any inconvenience during the closure.

“While the library is closed, people can use any other Suffolk library, the nearest being in Kedington and Glemsford.

“Customers can also reserve and renew books through the Suffolk Libraries catalogue on the website.

“Any library loans from Clare due back during the closure will have their return date automatically amended until after the new library opens.”
