Work is well underway in re-roofing Acomb Explore Library.
The Library is due to get a further makeover and extension in 2021 as part of the Councils modernisation programme.
Nearby the first of the new houses on the Acomb Bowling Green site on Front Street are nearing completion.
Hopefully completion of the development will allow for a more comprehensive plan for the use of the remaining land to be considered.
The land was purchased by the Council to facilitate an extension to the library in 2009. However successive Council leaders have chosen to allow the area to become increasingly derelict during the intervening period.
