A new and improved South Elmsall library has re-opened its doors this week.

The Barnsley Road building – which had been closed since June 8 – was given a makeover including new carpets, lighting, shelves and layout.

Coun David Dagger, Wakefield Council cabinet member for culture, sport and libraries, said: “We are really pleased to reopen the new and improved library and hope all the regular users will agree that the changes have made a positive difference to the library.

“We look forward to welcoming back existing customers and also hope to attract a few new faces .”

An extended mobile library service will also be launched in the next few months, as well as on going improvements to online library services. The refurbishment is part of a series of improvements taking place in council libraries across the district as part of a service review.
