PRESTATYN'S new library is set to open its doors next month.
Denbighshire Council has invested £850,000 into the Kings Avenue development, including a £300,000 maximum grant from CyMAL, the Welsh Government's Museums and Libraries Division.
The current library will close on November 2, leaving the town without a library until the new site opens on the 25th.
A Denbighshire Council spokesman said: "So that staff have time to relocate all the stock and get the new library ready, the current library on Nant Hall Road will close on November 2 at 12.30pm.
"No books will be due back during the three-week closure period - all loans will be extended until the new library is open and customers will be able to borrow more books than usual if they wish - up to 15 items.
"Library customers are also welcome to use Rhyl or Rhuddlan libraries or any other library in Denbighshire during this period."
The library is also set to serve as a hub for health and social care services, and will see education, learning and library coming together under the umbrella of a shared ‘learning community’ approach.
This could include business support; technology; engaging young people; adult learning; employment and recruitment training; literacy numeracy and ICT skills.
Denbighshire Council said it wants to provide a learning and information community resource that is bespoke to the needs of both the adults and young people of Prestatyn.
The library on Nant Hall Road will remain in Denbighshire County Council’s portfolio.
Following rumours of various major fast-food chains descending on the town, with the possibility of opening up in the library, earlier this year the Journal contacted McDonalds, KFC, Burger King and Subway, who all denied a possible move to Prestatyn.
