Grimsby Central Library is temporarily closed while repairs are carried out in the main entrance foyer.
In a joint statement, North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire said:
“Grimsby Central Library has temporarily closed and will remain closed until further notice.
“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
“The temporary closure is a precaution following a routine asbestos management inspection where further works have been identified within the main entrance foyer.
“Our regeneration partner EQUANS and contractors have completed air sampling and no risks have been identified that would cause concern to our staff, or customers or partners who use the building.
“An update will be issued when we know more about the timescales for the repairs.
“The Libraries in Cleethorpes, Waltham and Immingham are open as usual along with the online eLibrary service.
“Visit www.lincsinspire.com for opening times and online services. Thank you for your understanding.”
