A FULL refurbishment of the library at Linlithgow Academy has created a haven for all local bookworms.

Over the Easter holidays, the library was repainted, recarpeted and new furniture was installed to create a bright welcoming environment. With more shelving and display space, there is now capacity for 34 study places, 29 computers and a soft seating area. The furniture is designed so it can be easily moved to create a space for lectures and presentations.

Academy librarian Chris Morrison said: “The result is very impressive and has been enthusiastically received by both pupils and staff alike. It is clear the library will continue to be a valuable asset and will be heavily used, not just during school hours, but also by the local community in the evenings and at weekends. “
