Sections of the existing front will be removed and the ground floor will be extended and glazed.
The entrance to the library will also be changed to provide a double height glazed space, which will also act as an exhibition area.
The new glazing will also be tinted to provide colour to make the building open and welcoming.
The existing library space will be refurbished with new furniture, fittings and lighting.
The external area to the front of the library will also be upgraded to provide a landscaped plaza.
