There will be a power outage at the Civic Offices and Sutton Central Library over the weekend of 14-15 March to allow essential maintenance and upgrade work to be carried out on the UK Power networks systems, transformers and electrical infrastructure.

Sutton Central Library will be open on Saturday 14 March with limited book self-service facilities in operation, however, the public wi-fi, public computers and printers will all be out of use. The library will be closed on Sunday 15 March.
