The library at New College Stamford has been officially reopened following a £210,000 refurbishment over the summer.

The project was the latest in a series of improvements being made to the college to help its students achieve their potential and successfully move on to employment or university.

Chair of governors Alison Grant said: “With over 1,769 visits in just one week, investing in our library’s resources and facilities is an investment in our students’ future and the latest renovation reflects the true diversity and character of the college.”

With over 2,000 students completing qualifications at New College Stamford every year, the library refurbishment is an important cornerstone to supporting success.

It is home to everything students need to support their studies with approximately 8,000 textbooks, 1,000 fiction books, and 47 subscriptions to magazines and journals, plus access to online journals, eBooks and videos.

Deputy Mayor of Stamford Councillor Tony Story officially reopened the library.

Whether students need this library to find jobs, explore medical research, experience new ideas, get lost in wonderful stories, or simply for a place for gathering and studying – they can find it all there in the amazing new facility.

Members of the public can go along and see it for themselves at the college’s next open evening on January 24, between 5pm and 8pm.

Book online and reserve your place today.
