Enfield's busiest library is undergoing a £4.2 million transformative refurbishment as part of the Council's ambitious plans to provide an improved 21st century service.

The first images of Edmonton Green Library's facelift can now be seen by Enfield residents on the Council's website and Facebook page.

The work will create a two storey library and digital access centre with extra computers, free Wi-Fi, increased study space and customer access kiosks as well as fantastic resources for students and children and a dedicated local history and museum space to celebrate the area’s rich history.

The computer generated images, which will be made available for the public to view online at www.enfield.gov.uk and on the Council's Facebook page, depict the colourful, user-friendly children's area and the modern first floor of the library. 

The image of the customer access and online services area shows a floor jam-packed with state-of-the-art technology, meeting pods and work benches, as well as more casual seating arrangements.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Education, Children’s Services & Protection, Cllr Ayfer Orhan, said: "Edmonton Green Library is a much-loved facility and we are very excited by the investment in its future. These visual images help bring to life our vision for this important hub, which will benefit all manner of community groups, students and locals."

"We are very proud of  Enfield's library facilities. Many London councils have been unable to maintain their library services but in Enfield, we have 17 fantastic facilities. This latest push for Edmonton Green will offer an unrivalled service."

To facilitate the work, the library – which is visited more than 400,000 times a year – will remain closed until the Summer of 2017.

During the closure, you will still be able to access public computers at both Green Towers and Internet@31 in Edmonton Green Shopping Centre. The closest alternative library is at Winchmore Hill, Green Lanes. Other flagship libraries include Enfield Town, Palmers Green and Ordnance Road.
