In May 2011 Nick Forbes, the Leader of Newcastle Council, said,
“I am delighted that the residents of Jesmond will soon be able to use their newly refurbished library. The building is a valuable resource and these improvements have helped provide better access for everyone and will generate more community use. The refurbishment complements the distinctive architecture of the building, bringing it up to date with the latest technology.”In 2013, it seems that Jesmond Library is no longer "a valuable resource".
The library was quite busy whilst I was there. There were a few people using the computers, someone reading the papers and many people coming and going, borrowing and returning items.
