A LIBRARY which is celebrating its 25th anniversary is set to close for six weeks for a major upgrade.

Caldicot Library closed yesterday (June 9) for work to start on providing new flooring and two new community rooms at the Caldicot Hub where it is based.

The premises will also be repainted to make the space ready for its next quarter century.

Cllr Catherine Fookes, Monmouthshire County Council’s cabinet member for equalities and engagement, said: “I’m delighted to confirm this refurbishment to refresh the Hub ready for the celebrations later in the year, which will benefit the community of Caldicot for many years to come.”

While the main Community Hub building is closed for the upgrade, there will be a pop-up Hub in Caldicot’s TogetherWorks, which will include access to some council services and the opportunity to return library books and collect reserved items. Library members can still access a wide range of books and magazines digitally.

A council spokesperson said: “Every effort will be made to ensure that the refurbishments take less than six weeks, allowing the Hub to reopen as soon as possible. Caldicot Community Hub will be providing updates regarding the progress of the refurbishment on its social media channels at Twitter, Instagram and Facebook under

“The Community Hub team appreciates your patience whilst the work is taking place on the building and they look forward to welcoming everyone back into the refreshed hub later in the summer.”
