The RPL Board will be holding a consultation on the future of Central Library on Wednesday June 25, 2014 at 7 pm at Central Library.
This will be a VERY important meeting for members of the public to attend and express their views about the future services and building requirements for Central Library.
- What do you want in a Central Library?
- Does wanting to have good library services mean that the current library building needs to be demolished?
- Will the library be providing an option for adding onto and renovating the current building?
- How will the changes be funded? Will there be a public-private partnership?
Please attend and express your thoughts.
Stay tuned for other components of the consultation process, which will continue until September.

You can email your request and brief to firstname.lastname@example.org
