THATTO Heath Library is to close for the rest of the year to undergo a large scale refurbishment.
The Thatto Heath Road library will shut at noon on Saturday (October 1).
Work is taking place to create a high-tech community facility for residents.
New technology being installed at the library includes a wi-fi network, 29 PCs, including 12 Apple Macs, as well as special children’s laptops and three plasma screens.
The total refurbishment will also feature new lighting, dedicated children’s and teens areas and a multi-functional community room for adult learning courses.
Council bosses say it is unlikely the library will re-open this year.
