RUISLIP Manor Library was reopened on Tuesday (14) following refurbishment. 

Council leader Ray Puddifoot cut the ribbon, alongside the Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr David Yarrow.

They were joined by Year 5 pupils from nearby Lady Bankes Junior School, who recited a series of poems.

The library was transformed in 12 weeks as part of a £3m two-year programme for the borough's libraries. 

The new-look interior, predominantly open plan, now has distinct zones, highlighting that each area has a different use.

Cllr Puddifoot, said: “Ruislip Manor’s new look is fantastic and I hope residents and the wider community enjoy the newly-revitalised space.”

Charville Library in Hayes is currently closed as part of the programme and this will be followed by Harefield Library in February. They are both due to reopen in March.
