Newly Refurbished Wimbledon Library Re-Opens

Wimbledon Library has reopened its doors to the public after a three-month refurbishment period.

The newly refurbished library offers its members a more contemporary experience along with a range of new features.

This includes audio visual equipment, new books and a dedicated People’s Network Area, which houses 24 computers.

There are also separate terminals set aside for children and teenagers.

The new layout offers an open plan design with a user-friendly arrangement and special seating areas for young people and children.

The telephone numbers at Wimbledon Library have also changed. The new numbers are 020 8274 5757 and 020 8274 5759.

Councillor Mickey Spacey, Cabinet member for Community Services and Community Engagement said:

“Wimbledon Library is an essential part of Merton, so I’m delighted that we can now offer the community a facility which caters for modern needs.

I would greatly encourage members and non members to pay a visit and take advantage of the new features that are now in place.”

Refurbishments began at Wimbledon last October and form a key part of the overall library refurbishment programme in Merton that is still ongoing.

Mitcham Library and the ground floor of Morden Library are currently closed and it’s envisaged that they will both re-open at the start of April with improved facilities.
