Petworth library to reopen this week

PETWORTH library will reopen on Tuesday, July 3, at 1pm.

It is one of four branches which are temporarily shut in a bid to improve their IT and electrical systems before new self-service machines are installed later this summer.

West Sussex County Council deputy leader, Lionel Barnard, who oversees the library service, said: “We are already seeing the benefits from the new terminals in other libraries.

“They are an efficient method for loaning books and will make borrowing a quick and simple process.”
