Refurbishment of Palmers Green library will start this month.

Enfield Borough councillors, staff and the library's friends group will welcome contractor Borras construction to the site this week.

The remodeling of the library will start on Monday, August 18.

Cllr Ayfer Orhan, cabinet member for education, children’s services & protection and libraries, said: “Next autumn, Palmers Green Library will be a fantastic facility for students, children, and adults.

“Equipped with the latest computers, a broad selection of books, music and films to borrow, and areas for people to study and search for jobs it will be a lively centre for learning, training and children’s fun.

“I am pleased to welcome local residents and council staff who have supported its development and look forward to the continuing success of this very popular library.”
