Residents in Featherstone can enjoy reading in comfort after the town’s library reopened following six weeks of refurbishments.

The facility, on Victoria Street, opened its doors to the public again on Monday.

The revamp includes new central heating, shelving and furniture.

Coun David Dagger, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for culture and libraries, said: “We are very pleased to reopen and hope all users of the library will agree the environment and layout are much improved.

“The staff look forward to welcoming existing customers back and hope to attract many new users as well.”

Featherstone is the ninth library to be completed as part of the ongoing review of council library services.

Featherstone Community Centre, next to the library, will not reopen until Monday, April 14 after a major water leak at the site.

People are advised to check with their organisers if they have a session booked at the centre.
