Lads re-open Coombes Croft Library

Young professionals Nathan Byrne and Jake Nicholson helped re-open Coombes Croft library in Tottenham after a major refit.

Renovation work costing £1m has been carried out at the library on Tottenham High Road, opposite White Hart Lane stadium. The funding from the Big Lottery Fund has also meant that the library has been extended.

It's now one of the most up-to-date libraries in the capital and boasts the latest facilities, including areas set aside for community meetings and facilities for children and young people.

As part of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation's close relationship with Haringey's Library Services, players from the Club's Academy regularly take part in Storytelling sessions with children in the Borough's libraries, including Coombes Croft, through the Kick Into Reading programme.

Cllr Dilek Dogus, Cabinet Member for adult and community services, said: "This work has transformed Coombes Croft. It's a fantastic library for local people.

"We want it to become a focus for the local community - a place where groups can meet. We're very grateful to the Big Lottery Fund for their very generous donation which has meant that this work could go ahead."
