SOUTH West Library, Barr's Cottage, Greenock has re-opened to the public after a £300,000 six-month refurbishment.
Work included a new roof and double-glazing; complete redecoration with new bookshelves, counter and furniture.
There is a state-of-the-art learning zone with interactive whiteboard; more public access computers with free wi-fi; bright comfortable children's area; young adult area with study space; a coffee machine and comfortable seating. An induction loop is also provided for the benefit of people with hearing difficulties.
Some work is still being carried out including improved accessibility with a ramp, automatic doors and an adapted toilet suitable for wheelchair users. The public toilet also offers baby changing facilities.
An official launch with a special guest will follow as soon as the project is totally complete.
