Subtle upgrades to Westridge Library will ensure that avid readers and visitors continue to have a great experience in comfort and leisure.

Ward 78 councillor Eddie Andrews recently made ward allocation budget available to install an air conditioner at the library to ensure the library remains comfortable for locals.

“In summer it became too hot and in winter too cold for the library patrons. In this regard it was important to have the aircon installation considered when the next ward allocation funding was available,” he says.

“[In addition] the procurement of computers for the children’s section will now afford the little ones their own computer space to further develop computer literacy skills.”

As the only library in the ward, it was the only one to benefit from the allocation.

“The library affords students a space to do their homework as in some instances the domestic situation does not offer a safe and comfortable working space.

“The library is very well resourced with books, access to the internet and other resources.

“The library also has a winter holiday programme to encourage children to engage with the library as a safe space of learning and for use in leisure time,” says Andrews­.
