A Brighton library closes its doors for the final time today (Saturday 7 October) as staff prepare for a move to new premises.

Brighton and Hove City Council said: “Hollingbury Library will operate in its current building for the last time on Saturday 7 October, ahead of a move to two new locations in the area.

“The library will reopen at the Old Boat Corner Community Centre in Hollingbury on (Tuesday) 14 November, with an increase in opening hours from the current three days a week to seven days a week.

“A library service will also be available at Hollingbury and Patcham Children’s Centre at Carden Primary School in the new year, with a particular emphasis on books and services for young children and families in the area.

“Both new sites are a short distance from the existing library building in Carden Hill.

“The nearest alternative library in the meantime is Patcham Library.”

Patcham Library is in Ladies Mile Road.
