Stockton Public Library, United Kingdom

Public libraries / Completed 2011

A helping hand to the community

State-of-the-art technology will help the residents of Stockton access council services in a whole new way now that the town’s Central Library has reopened. Following its refurbishment, the building offers a great deal more than books with a one-stop-shop approach which means residents will no longer need to visit several council offices.


The library boasts state of the art technology with a specialist technology suite for blind and visually impaired people. There is also an area that is dedicated to local and family history where the use of Gothia Shelving with punched wooden end panels creates an environment that has a traditional quality about it whilst still maintaining the modern feel of the rest of the building.
