Brockworth Link & Community Library refurbishment pictures 2021

We are excited to share with you some pictures of the newly refurbished Brockworth Link & Community Library which is now open and ready to welcome you back.

As soon as you reach the entrance the changes are noticeable as you enter through new sliding doors and head towards our relocated reception desk across our newly laid flooring.  The children’s area has been relocated to the right of reception where bold and eye-catching artwork has been added to the walls.

As you walk back past the reception desk into the main library area you will find new seating and tables throughout with a cosy well-lit snug area with comfy seating, and desk areas with privacy dividers. There are plenty of options for you to rest and read, research, or focus on some work.  

Further down you will find the meeting room area which now boasts folding partition doors allowing us to open up the space when it is not in use for one of our courses which we hope will return very soon. Please do get in touch via office@brockworthlink.org.uk if you are interested in hiring the meeting room.

Heading back towards the entrance you will find our self service checkout machine where you can login, search, order items and manage your account.

Our opening hours are as follows and we look forward to you paying us a visit:

  • Monday 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm
  • Tuesday 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm
  • Wednesday 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm

News update from Brockworth Link and Brockworth Community Library

We wanted to share our great news with users of our community library. From 29th March 2021, a major refurbishment begins at the library. This refurbishment should last approx. 6-8 weeks. The library and the charity offices will be completely renovated and catapulted into the 21st century. Whilst this change is taking place, Brockworth Library and the charity office will relocate to within Brockworth Community Centre. The Parish Council have very generously offered space in order for the library to continue to provide a service to the community.

From 12th April, 2021, you will be able to find the library operating in the entrance lobby of the community centre, during the following hours:

  • Monday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Tuesday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Wednesday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Thursday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm

No phone line to Brockworth Link or the library will be available, please contact us via email on office@brockworthlink.org.uk or see Annie in the reception area.

You will find Annie Fuller in reception, receiving and issuing library books.

Monica, our General Manager, will be located in the Youth Centre office, should you need her.

The range of books on offer is limited, as most of our stock has had to go into storage. We hope you will find what you need for a few weeks. During this time, we will not be able to process any book reservations.

We will regularly update you on how the refurbishment is going.

Thank you for your patience and we hope you are as excited about this as we are!
