Town Hall, temporary Central Lending Library, setting up
17th August 1999. View of the setting up of the temporary Central Lending Library in the crypt of the Town Hall, the Central Lending had to move out of the Municipal Buildings next door for 10 months while essential work was carried out. The Town Hall Crypt, formerly part of the police headquarters, was used during the second world war first as an ARP post and later as a British Restaurant which it remained until 1966.
