Chester Library is moving to its wonderful new home in Storyhouse during April 2017.

In order to relocate library stock, prepare the brand new library and train staff, the existing library will close at 5pm on Friday 31 March 2017.

During April 2017 when the library is closed, residents will be advised to use the nearby libraries of Blacon, Hoole, Great Boughton, Lache and Upton.

Residents are able to access library services at any time through the website: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/libraries or by telephone: 0845 148 0148.

During the move there will be no access to Chester Library stock. Loans will be extended so borrowed stock will not be due back during the closed period.

The closure will be communicated to customers in our March promotional email, and the web pages, informing stakeholders, issuing a press release and using social media to highlight key messages.

Information leaflets about the transition arrangements will be made available in Chester Library and other Chester branches.

The library is working with Storyhouse on combined communications ahead of the formal opening. A series of test events in Storyhouse will be hosted towards the end of April and beginning of May.

The current plan is to be fully open from Thursday 11 May 2017.
