LIBRARY staff are hosting a public drop-in session next Tuesday, April 16, to talk about plans to move it into the former Argos store in Harpenden High Street (pictured).

The drop-in will take place from 2pm to 5.30pm at the existing library in Vaughan Road when library staff will be on hand to talk about the move and answer questions.

After closing at 7pm on April 23, the library will re-open at the new High Street location at 9am on Thursday, May 2.

Andrew Bignell, the county council’s head of libraries, culture and learning, said: “The time between closing and re-opening will enable us to transfer stock and services from one site to the other.

“After the move, the library will be in a central location and be more accessible to users. It will be on one level, offering greater flexibility and better use of space, and will have a fully accessible toilet for visitors.

The project will bring together local library services and Youth Connexions under one roof and an official opening will take place in the summer.
