Bognor library to close for revamp

BOGNOR Regis Library will be closed for three weeks from 5pm on February 3 while new self-service machines are installed.

It is the latest branch in West Sussex to have the state-of-the-art systems fitted.

Readers can still borrow as many as 20 items before the temporary closure or use other nearby branches - including Willowhale, Chichester or Littlehampton libraries. The service will reopen at 9:30am on Monday, February 27.

West Sussex County Council Deputy Leader, Lionel Barnard, who oversees the Library Service, said: “The new machines are quick and easy to use and will mean an end to the long queues for borrowing items.

“You can print off lists of your loaned books, check when something is due for return and even make any cash payments.”
