Kimberworth Library ‘better than ever’
A LIBRARY which campaigners fought to keep from closure has reopened after a £36,000 refurbishment.
Popular Kimberworth Library, on Church Street, was saved following a public consultation earlier this year.
The facelift has brought a more modern feel to the facility and includes new shelves and an improved IT suite.
Derek Padgett, from Friends of Kimberworth Library, said: “It’s certainly brought it into the 21st century.
“It was getting a bit tired before but they have done a very good job with the refurbishment.
“We’re very pleased that the library’s stayed open and we really appreciate the extended hours as well.”
The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr John Foden, performed the opening ceremony.
