The updated library now features a digital access centre, with dozens of upgraded computers, free wifi, spruced-up study space and new self-service kiosks.

There is also now a dedicated local history and museum space to celebrate the borough’s history.

Enfield Council's cabinet member for education, children’s services and protection, Ayfer Orhan, praised the new-look library: "We value it greatly, as do our residents, and I am delighted we have upgraded and transformed this marvellous facility as part of our wider plans to promote growth and sustainability in Enfield".

The upgrade forms part of the council’s library development strategy that was agreed in 2015, in order to ensure a sustainable future for the borough's libraries; prior to this they had not seen significant investment in over 15 years.
