Staff and customers celebrated the official opening of the new library in Cotgrave, with special guests including local celebrity – Gary Bell QC, the Asda fork lift driver and Pork Farm production line worker turned celebrity barrister.
The library is now housed in the new Cotgrave Hub that opened to the public in November and it houses the local health services, police and Rushcliffe Borough Council offices.
Councillor John Cottee said, “We are delighted to be part of this much-needed development in Cotgrave.
“The presence of the library in the Cotgrave Hub is integral to us achieving Nottinghamshire County Council and Inspire’s vision of libraries being at the heart of the community.
“We look forward to providing the people of Cotgrave with new opportunities for reading, learning, community and cultural activity in this new and welcoming space.”
Councillor Andy Edyvean added: “Assisting key public services such as Inspire’s library services in Cotgrave was one of the fundamental reasons we created The Cotgrave Hub.
“We want local people to access services conveniently and take advantage of the library, our Community Contact Point, Belvoir Health Group, Rushcliffe Community Voluntary Service and Nottinghamshire Police all being under one roof.”
