Re: [greatharwood] The Public Library
- Around about then we got a new library, so you could have visited both the
old and the new.
The old library was on Water Street at the rear of the Mercer Hall. A wooden
building which is still in use by the Guides, I think.
The new library is on Queen Street between the day nursery and the Plough
pub. Considering some of the public buildings erected in that era, its quite
pleasent on the eye.
In fact go to 'files' on egroup and checkout '(461) views' folder.(461
refers to message number which introduces the folder) There is a photo of
new library there.
It is shortly to be demolished to make way for a Co-op supermarket, so if
you want to see it in the flesh to relive your childhood, suggest you get
your skates on!!!!
