Burton Library set to undergo £1.3m refurb with extensive improvements

A £1.3 million package of improvements at Burton library will see the transformation of space for people of all ages and various community groups. An allocation of £265,000 was secured from the Government’s Libraries Improvement Fund with Staffordshire County Council investing the remainder. The funding will support the improvement of the library service in Burton with better space for enjoying books and many other social and learning activities. It follows investment at libraries in Lichfield, Tamworth, Stafford and Newcastle. After engaging with library users, the Burton library team found that people would like to see space for cultural enrichment, a place where there are opportunities for creativity, learning and socialising and improved digital access. The refurbishment will involve repurposing the ground floor of the library into a vibrant, multi-purpose, accessible and inclusive space.
