A north-east library has closed temporarily to allow for works after an investment of more than £30,000.
Inverurie Library will remain closed until July 9 to allow for the refurbishment works which include the installation of a series of sensory developments and a tourist information area along with new furniture and fittings.
A ‘bubble wall’ will be installed at the issue desk along with a softly lit table, hoped to help children improve their sight, touch and movement skills.
There will be an open day on July 8 from 10am until 2pm to allow visitors to experience the new changes.
Aberdeenshire Council’s libraries and information services manager Sharon Jamieson said: “I am delighted that some of these new and experimental works are taking place. This is a significant investment of almost £35,000 to provide a new and exciting library experience for Inverurie and the surrounding areas.”
Nearby libraries can be found in Kemnay and Kintore.
