BEWDLEY library will close its doors to residents on July 25 ahead of its relocation to the new Medical Centre site.

The current library, in Load Street, will move to the Medical Centre site, in Dog Lane, ahead of its reopening on Monday, August 8.

While the building is out of action, the nearest libraries will be at the Stourport Civic Centre, in New Street, or Kidderminster Library, in Market Street.

A spokesman from Worcestershire County Council said the relocation will offer Bewdley residents a brand new library, benefit from a shared location and achieve savings which will help ensure the sustainability of the local library service.
