This opened in September 2013 after costing £189 million to build. It houses some one million books. Within 12 months lack of money led the council to declare its intention to reduce the opening hours from 73 to 40 per week. They also proposed to make half the staff redundant. In 2015 they modified this and the library is now open 6 days a week but with reduced staffing in the evenings. It remains closed on a Sunday (By comparison The Hive in worcester is open 7 days a week ) The opening hours are now 11am to 7pm Monday and Tuesday and 11am to 5pm Wednesday to Saturday. The Hive by comparison is open from 8.30am to 10pm seven days a week.
