First Lotto library opens in UK

"Newbold Verdon, the first of 58 'Lotto' libraries planned throughout the country, has opened its doors for the first time. The first of the new wave of libraries Newbold Verdon, on the outskirts of Leicester, received GBP781,000 from the Big Lottery Fund's Community Libraries programme. In total 58 libraries will receive a share of GBP80m thanks to a joint partnership between the Fund and the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council. The programme has funded the transformation of the chosen libraries so that traditional library services can be combined with other local services such as learning centres, One Stop Shops, health initiatives and space for community activities, all under one roof"
