The long awaited essential roof repairs to Acocks Green Library have now been given the go-ahead. The Library will close on Saturday 13th May, and is scheduled to re-open in September. Books can be returned to any other branch library during this time.
To compensate for the closure, the nearest alternative – South Yardley Library, will have extended opening hours. South Yardley library is just before the Swan Island, less than 10 minutes from Acocks Green village on the no.11 bus.

The Neighbourhood Office will also be closed. The nearest alternative office is Stechford Customer Service Centre. Many enquiries can be dealt with on the phone or online. For more information click HERE
Councillor Iain Bowen’s Advice Bureau will remain in the Scout Hut on Spring Road (behind Scanlon’s) until the Library is reopened. It runs every Monday evening (except Bank Holidays) between 7pm and 8pm. The over 50s coffee mornings will continue to run from the Scout Hut.
