Break-in at Rotherham library

BURGLARS smashed their way into a Rotherham library over the weekend.

Police were called to Mowbray Gardens Library on Sunday (15) at 1am after receiving reports of a burglary.

“It is believed the unknown offenders smashed a window to gain entry to the library,” said a spokeswoman.

“Officers attended and enquiries are ongoing.” 

The Herringthorpe Valley Road library and neighbourhood hub was forced to close on Monday morning but reopened in the afternoon.

A Rotherham Council spokeswoman said nothing had been stolen, adding: “The Library will continue to host its regular activities and we look forward to welcoming residents again.”
