The Royal Borough's newest library featuring a host of benefits for people with disabilities will open its doors on Monday.
The library - the authority's 14th - is in a new purpose-built extension to the Boyn Grove Community Resource Centre in Courthouse Road, Maidenhead.
It will be linked to the resource centre’s provision for people with dementia and will be 'dementia friendly', with appropriate signs and other features.
A bigger and better sensory room for people with learning disabilities has also been built as part of the project with a brightly-coloured wall mural painted by resource centre users.
Staff at the library includes two people recruited through the council's Ways into Work scheme which helps place people with disabilities into work and training.
A fun programme of events for youngsters has been planned during the first week during their Easter holidays.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
