Library set to move again

SHETLAND library is set to move back to its old premises if the money to refurbish the leaking old library and museum building can be found in the council’s capital programme.

Shetland Islands Council education and families committee agreed on Monday to move ahead with the plans that are estimated to cost £900,000.

In 2002, the library and learning centre moved from its traditional base at the Hillhead to the furbished St Ringans Church and an adjacent building next door amidst concern that it was too small and not suitable for the propose.

If approved by the full council on 2 December, library services could move into both floors of the original building as early as 2017, councillors heard on Monday.
