Essex County Standard: Colchester Library will reopen on Monday Colchester Library will reopen on Monday

COLCHESTER library will reopen on Monday following its conversion to include Colchester Council’s customer service centre.

The Trinity Square building will become the Colchester Library and Community Hub.

It follows six weeks of work which allowed the council services previously based at Angel Court, in the High Street, to transfer over.

With Colchester Council and Essex County Council attempting to bring all services under one roof, residents will now be able to get benefits advice or report a pothole at the library

John Jowers, county councillor responsible for libraries and communities, said: “I am absolutely delighted that both councils are working together in this exciting partnership which will make access to public services even easier for local residents.

“I see partnerships like this as very much the future for Essex Libraries, helping to ensure that libraries remain at the heart of their communities for many years to come.”

New lifts have been installed to provide disabled access to the second floor. The escalator has been refurbished and the Local Studies Library updated.
More PCs are available on the ground floor while the accessible toilets and baby changing rooms have been refurbished.

Staff from Colchester Council will be based on all three floors, with private interview rooms on the second floor.

They will be available from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. At other hours, library staff can help residents access services and pay bills online.
