Work to create an updated modern library for Aylesbury will start during August.

The Aylesbury Library building on Walton Street is being gutted and completely refurbished, bringing the reference library and lending library under the same roof, also introducing a number of fantastic new and modern facilities fit for the 21st Century. 

The lending library will then operate out of Aylesbury Study Centre over the summer and into the Autumn until the refurbishment is finished

Aylesbury Study Centre will close for a long weekend to allow the move to take place. It will close at 2:00pm, Thursday 9 August and reopen at 9:30am, Tuesday 14 August
