Stockton Central Library “turns a new page”

Following the extensive refurbishment undertaken by the company, Stockton Central Library was formally reopened by Best-Selling Author, Philippa Gregory.

Four decades since its first opening the new-look library now incorporates a new Customer Service Centre on the ground floor offering local residents a single point to find out information, apply for services and make payments to the Council.

Councillor David Coleman, Stockton Council’s cabinet member for access and communities, said: “By putting many of our services under one roof, we are creating a one-stop-shop which means residents will no longer need to visit several council offices.”

In addition to the existing library facilities, there is now a specialist technology suite for blind and visually impaired people, another suite is dedicated to local and family history and a multi-media conference facility caters for up to 100 people.
