Haltwhistle Library set for a £2.2 million facelift

The residents of Haltwhistle will soon be able to enjoy a state-of-the-art library which replace the old library currently situated on the high street. The new £2.2 million development will also contain a community centre and is being partly funded by a £1.5 million donation from the Big Lottery Fund. Local residents recently had the chance to look at the final plans for the three-storey development at the current library base now situated, temporarily, in the Clive Brown shop on the high street.

Despite the fact that many of Haltwhistle’s better-known employment opportunities disappeared some years ago the town has enjoyed something of a resurgence of late. With the Haltwhistle Heritage Centre appearing to be on track we now we have a £2.2 million redevelopment of the town’s well-established library services.

Often neglected by local council in the past it seems that Haltwhistle is now set for a period of significant growth in the short to medium term. What other developments await this reborn town?
