Thanks for your Library comments card at the end of last week.

I’m afraid we have no plans to put heaters outside in the smoking area given the cost and also that the area is not designed to be occupied for long periods of time.  We have been receiving complaints recently about this area both in terms of the smoke coming from it and also the litter created by some users of this space.

We are currently considering other options including the relocation of the smoking area away from the front door but a heated area is not something we’ll be introducing.

Thanks again
