Great news for Hereford Library as membership increases for February with 565 new members joining the library, ranging in age from months old to 93. Proving that it's never too early, or too late, to join a library.

Visitor numbers have also increased with 3933 visitors recorded for the month of January at the Town Hall compared with 16,957 visitors to Broad Street in February which is fabulous news.

The Library reopened on Broad Street on January 31 after having been refurbished.

Councillor Harry Bramer, Cabinet member for contracts and assets, said:

"This is great news to see the increase in library members and usage, since the Library reopened with a fresh modern look, and we hope that this trend will continue as more and more people visit and use the library"
