The “hub of Islington’s south” has officially re-opened.
Finsbury Library, in St John Street, has been improved with better shelving and improved seating, study space and power sockets.
It is also the home to Islington Museum, the Local History Centre, the Ben Kinsella Exhibition, the Islington Computer Skills Centre and the area Housing Office. It has free wi-fi and computer access.
Cllr Asima Shaikh, Islington’s executive member for economic and community development, said: “Thanks to these improvement works, it’s now even easier for local people to come in and work, to go online and get the information they need.
“Finsbury Library is much more than just a building with books. It’s a hub of south Islington’s community. A place where people can access different worlds: through its museums and exhibitions, through its computers and online services, or through its rich range of books and stories, music and DVDs.
