Mapplewell and Staincross Library re-opens its doors following refurbishment

From today, Monday 8 July, Mapplewell and Staincross Library is welcoming back its visitors following an exciting refurbishment.

Mapplewell and Staincross Library is the seventh branch in the borough to benefit from our Libraries Refurbishment Programme.

The newly refurbished and expanded library features an enhanced children’s area, as well as new spaces for work and study, new carpets and more comfortable seating.

Cllr Wendy Cain, Cabinet Spokesperson for Public Health and Communities, said: “Mapplewell and Staincross Library, located at the village hall, is one of our busiest branches, so we would like to thank residents for their patience while we carried out the work to make the library offer even better than before.

“Whether you’re borrowing books, using the library for studying, or attending one of our exciting events or activities, we hope you’ll enjoy the newly refurbished space.”

To celebrate the re-opening, Mapplewell and Staincross Library will be hosting an official opening event later this summer – more details will be shared in the due course.

For workshops and events at Mapplewell and Staincross Library as well as for more information on opening times and facilities, please visit Barnsley Libraries webpage.

Mapplewell and Staincross Library refurbishment is part-funded by Barnsley Council’s Principal Towns and Local Centres programme, with an additional £100,000 from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The refurbishment aligns with our continued commitment to invest in Principal Towns and local centres, creating vibrant and connected communities across Barnsley.
