Andy McNab, the bestselling author and decorated former SAS soldier, marched into Brigg on Tuesday to open the town’s new library and local link.

The brand new facilities are housed in the Angel, and after extensive renovations the library and local link have now been officially opened to the public. In a short service attended by members of both Brigg Town Council and North Lincolnshire Council, Andy McNab unveiled a plaque marking the occasion.

McNab said “I am a big fan of libraries, and understand the importance of reading.”

The author of Bravo Two Zero spoke of how the army taught him the importance of literacy and numeracy, helping him to appreciate the significance of Brigg’s new library.

He said: “This will be a place for those who enjoy reading to come and continue to enjoy it and for other people to come and get involved in reading.

It is great to a see a new facility like this and a council bucking the trend in a big way.”

Andy McNab, the bestselling author and former SAS soldier, is to open Brigg’s new library and local link.

On Tuesday, June 12, McNab will officially open the library and local link at its new location in The Angel.

The thriller writer shot to prominence in 1993 when he published his account of the SAS patrol, Bravo Two Zero, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal in 1991.

McNab has gone on to write several further non fiction books, autobiographies and novels.

Councillor Carl Sherwoood of North Lincolnshire Council said “It is a real coup to get Andy McNab to open the library and local link”

The new library and local link housed in The Angel opened for its doors for business this week, after extensive renovations and a move to bring the two services under one roof.

With both services now in a more central location and more accessible to the people of Brigg, Cllr Sherwood said “The new premises are much better than the old.

“It’s more spacious and welcoming. I’m delighted with the improvements, and I’m confident you will be too.”

Aaarrggh…bad news for all of us Andy McNab fans…. Andy’s new Tom Buckingham series ‘Red Notice’ and the new Nick Stone thriller ‘Silencer’ are delayed 🙁

‘Red Notice’ will now be published in October 2012 instead of ‘Silencer’ – which has been postponed until October next year!!!! *WEEP*

Well…to be honest we here really wondered how Andy could keep up with all those book titles ‘demanding’ to be produced.  We’re not sure why these books have been postponed but we do know Andy is alive and kicking.. so it can’t be anything dramatic. Of course it IS a big drama ….. for us!!!

Another consequence is this….alas…:
