Due to a structural incident at Bebington Civic Centre, the building will be closed to the public while a full inspection takes place and an assessment made as to what remedial works may be needed.
It is not known at this stage how long a full closure will be needed, but clearly all activities at the centre – including the library and any planned clubs, meetings or events – have had to be cancelled until further notice.
This is a precautionary measure taken in the interests of the safety of staff and visitors and we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.
More details will be known once the inspection and assessment has been carried out. In the meantime, other libraries are open at Birkenhead, Bromborough, Eastham, Greasby, Moreton, Rock Ferry, Wallasey Central and West Kirby.
There is also an ‘order and collect’ service operating at Birkenhead, Wallasey Central and West Kirby libraries. The Home Reader Service is also continuing to operate.
