Stamford’s library re-opened on Stamford High Street on Tuesday 3 May, after nine months of work on the roof, although construction hoardings remain in place while work continues on the building.
The library has been operating a click and collect services from premises on Ryhall Road since last September. Anything borrowed during this period has an extended return period, up to 24 May.
Library Manager, Lea Rickard, told Rutland and Stamford Sound about various historic items found in the roof during the renovations, including ginger beer bottles, shoes and workman’s tools dating back to the nineteenth century. The treasures will be on display in the library.
Work on the windows and stone frontage is ongoing but can be done while the library continues to operate.
