Greasbrough Library's distinctive new look

A LIBRARY has been transformed inside and out - with a new mural depicting faces and scenes from the area.

A meeting room and children’s area have been added within Greasbrough Library as part of the renovation.

Outside, artwork has been added to promote the service - and showing scenes like the recently demolished Greasbrough Town Hall.

Rotherham Borough Council hopes to see the library take up more of a community hub role after its decision to knock down the hall.

The new meeting space hosts networking events with residents, groups and councillors.

Cllr Sarah Allen, RMBC cabinet member for cleaner, greener communities, said: “We hold these events on a regular basis because we are committed to putting residents at the heart of everything we do. 

“The most recent one was attended by 40 people, all of whom are committed to working with us to improve their local area”.

Fellow ward member Cllr Rob Elliott added: “The works have been well received and it is brilliant to celebrate Greasbrough, its people and the fantastic offer at our library.”

An event to mark the changes will be attended by the Mayor of Rotherham Cllr Alan Buckley, on Thursday from 10am.
