THURSO Library is moving back to its traditional home almost three years after being forced out due to major structural damage.

On Monday, staff will open the doors to the public at Davidson’s Lane after the library received a £1 million makeover to save it from disrepair.

The building was originally only meant to be closed for 12 weeks due to an issue with asbestos in January 2013.

However, major structural problems were discovered within the building resulting in it remaining closed for 34 months.

During that time the library has operated from a temporary base in Princes Street.

However, the library, which is also home to the Swanson Gallery, has received a complete transformation and is being hailed as a flagship library in the Highlands.
