I attended the official opening of the new refurbished Leyton Library on High Rd Leyton on Saturday afternoon along with my colleagues Councillors Naheed Qureshi and Winnie Smith (pictured is Cllr. Naheed Qureshi and me at the entrance to the library). The upper floors of the library are now open to the public due to the new lift which connects all floors. On the first floor there is a very large computer room that was previously used as a reading room many years ago. There are many smaller rooms on this floor and the upper floors that offer meeting rooms for hire. Riverley Childrens Centre has made use of some rooms for their childrens activities already.
The library put on a good show for local children ( storytelling and facepainting) which went on through the day. The refurbishment of the library has taken some time but it was worth it in the end.
Don’t forget that every Saturday from 10 till 12 noon we hold our councillors surgery/advice cenre at the Library. Why not pop in to see one of us and the new library one Saturday?
