New-look carpet for library
The floor covering is used in a brand new children's section, which is themed around Philippa Pearce's famous novel Tom's Midnight Garden, Cambridge News Online reports.
A pond, greenery and a number of pathways are depicted on the carpet, which is complemented by a large train housing a number of the books.
Elsewhere in the building, the brown carpets that were for many years a fixture have been removed and replaced by more colourful flooring, while brighter seats have also been installed.
Commenting on the refit, which cost a total of £7.5 million, Cambridgeshire County Council's communities chief Sir Peter Brown remarked: "What people have got is a fantastic facility of which they can be really proud."
Shore News Today reported recently that Cape May County Chamber of Commerce's Think Green seminar had noted the prominent role recycled carpets can play in helping to make buildings more environmentally friendly.
