Harlow Library refurbishment

Design plan for refurbished Harlow Library.

Harlow Library is a large two-storey building from the 1960s in the heart of the town centre. It was extensively refurbished in 2022 and is now a high quality, welcoming and inclusive space meeting residents’ needs and accommodating Adult Community Learning (ACL).

The improved library space includes:​

  • good stocks of books and resources that customers want
  • a café serving light snacks and drinks
  • a large, vibrant, exciting children's library, with sensory equipment​
  • a modern, flexible layout that can be used for events and group gatherings
  • quiet spaces where you can sit, study, read or work
  • a literacy area, with special books and materials for people of all ages who want help with their reading
  • an event/exhibition space on the first floor run in partnership with ACL​

All windows have been replaced; there is a new heating and ventilation system; new flooring and decoration​.
