Grimsby Central Library is due to open in the middle of January after it had to close for urgent repairs and replacement works in the main Lending Library and entrance foyer.
In a joint statement, North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire said:
“Grimsby Central Library temporarily closed in November as a precaution following a routine asbestos management inspection.
“Repair works are progressing well and we expect to reopen the library by mid-January.
“Thank you to all library users for their patience during the temporary closure.
“An update will be issued in the New Year when we will confirm the opening date.
“Our regeneration partner EQUANS and contractors carried out air sampling and no risks have been identified that would cause concern to our staff, customers or partners who use the building.
“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.”
