New lease of life for site of old Broxburn Library

The former Broxburn library is set for a new lease of life following an agreement for the sale of the property to Broxburn Bargain Centre.

31 January

The property on West Main Street is set to be sold to Broxburn Bargain Centre, an established family business, trading locally in the sale of home furnishings since 1950.

The business currently occupies the neighbouring commercial premises at 10 West Main Street, Broxburn and, subject to planning permission being secured; the proposed acquisition of the former library building would facilitate an expansion of the existing business.

Broxburn library has been at its new home at Strathbrock Partnership Centre in Broxburn since January 2017.

Since the move to the Strathbrock Partnership Centre, the library has welcomed approximately treble the amount of customers in comparison to its' previous location and issued over 48,000 books to customers during this period.

Executive councillor for culture and leisure Dave King said: "The former library in Broxburn is an important building within the town and it's good to see the property will allow a local business to grow and flourish.

Since the library has relocated to the Strathbrock Partnership Centre it has went from strength to strength, delivering an excellent service to more people in the local community than ever before. "
