Event - Activities plan as library closes (Carlton Road Library, Nottingham)

A PROGRAMME of tours and activities in libraries has been announced as one library prepares to close its doors this weekend.

Carlton Road Library will shut tomorrow ahead of a new library opening in St Ann's Joint Service Centre early next year.

Members of the public have been invited to activities at other libraries this summer, including St Ann's Library, Bakersfield Library and Nottingham Central Library.

These include a night of films about Nottingham's history, a jewellery session, a lesson about bats and a ghost stories event.

Councillor David Trimble, council portfolio holder for leisure, culture and tourism, said: "The decision to close a library is never an easy one.

"We have set up this exciting programme of events for citizens to enjoy at other local libraries so they are introduced to services around them."
