Welwyn Garden City Library to close to install machines

WELWYN Garden City Library will close for four days next month for the installation of new self service machines.

The Library, in Campus West, will be shut from October 4 to October 8 when the new issue and return equipment will be put in.

The library is one of five left withought the hi-tech new machines, in the countywide roll out, which has also seen them installed at libraries in Hatfield and Woodhall.

Despite the move towards automation a County Council spokesman insisted the machines would not lead to redundancies.

“He added: “It is a new issue and return system that is going in libraries across the county, 41 libraries have already got it.”
