Temporary Closure of Worksop Library

Published 12th November 2019

Following exceptional rainfall on Thursday 7 November, Worksop Library on Memorial Avenue suffered a devastating flood throughout the 2000sqm building.

Recovery specialists are currently clearing and cleansing the building, whilst the council and its property partnership ARC develop a programme of works to restore the building for use again.  Due to the significant amount of work required to restore the building, it is estimated that it will be next summer when the library and its services will be fully operational again.  Alternative venues for the library service and cultural programme are being explored.
