The ECCL story in brief
The trustees were tasked with reimagining the library to provide a real community space and to act as a cultural hub. Coventry City Council supported with a transition fund and Alan Denyer, owner/proprietor of AWD Restorations, stepped forward too. He looked beneath the trappings of a century of modifications; recognised the beauty of the building and was the inspiration and drive for its successful reinvention – giving freely of his expertise, craftmanship and time. You can share some of this journey now as we show you a brief glimpse of before and after.
Our restoration work is now complete and looking amazing. Our beautiful library now revels in its Edwardian heritage. The symmetry has been revealed, original features have been rediscovered and brought out of hiding – and our new events space The Reading Room is ready to welcome you. You’ll be able to browse through our wide collection of books and relax on one of our new sofas whilst enjoying a cuppa. (Covid19 permitting) Photocopying and printing will be available as before.
We’d like to thank you for using our services, borrowing from our expanding stock of books, using our computers, buying our donated books, attending our events and generally keeping us going as a wonderful local asset.
A library is the last safe community space. Please help us keep it so.
It’s worthwhile registering your children too; overdue children’s books taken out on their own tickets have fines waived.
You can support us by buying our exclusive range of cards.
They are priced at £1 each or 6 for £5
