New Brighton roof upgrade from Wednesday 26 April 2023

Library and cafe are open during the upgrade

New Brighton Library is undergoing upgrade work to install a weathertight roof membrane, to prevent any leaking issues. The work is expected to take approximately 8 weeks to complete.

The Library and café will stay open during this time.

On the roof, contractors are using a scaffold at the edge of the roof for safety, rather than requiring full scaffold around the entire perimeter of the facility. This allows accessibility to the library for the public during the construction period.

Fencing will be installed in certain areas around the perimeter of the building. Fencing won’t restrict access to the library and café.
