Library to remain closed until Monday

ONGOING repairs to the power supply at Whitley Bay Library mean it will be closed on Saturday.

A fault had been found with the power at the Park Road library and tourist information centre on Thursday afternoon.

This resulted in the amenity being closed all day Friday.

But the repair work is still to be completed, meaning the service will be unavailable over the weekend.

North Tyneside Council said it apologises for the short notice given to customers and any inconvenience caused.

Any borrowed items due for return can be returned to other libraries in North Tyneside.

Alternatively they can be renewed online at or by calling (0191) 258 4875.

The local authority also said that any fines incurred as a result of the closure will be waived.

It is expected that the building will re-open on Monday.
