SOUTH Tynesiders have been given a glimpse of the future as artist’s impressions show how the new Central Library and Digital Media Centre could look.
The three-storey building will form the first part of the £100m South Shields 365 project, which aims to transform the town centre over the coming years.
As well as a library, the new building, located next to the Market Place, will also feature an IT suite, exhibition space, a café and a rooftop restaurant and terrace.
It is also planned to have a “pier” walkway and viewing gallery on the first floor that will allow people to look out across the Tyne.
