The next chapter for Marlow Library

| |

Bucks County Council have advised us of proposals for improvement and expansion of local services from Marlow Library – which are going on display in the library from December 18 until the end of January.

Residents, local organisations, businesses and groups are being invited to drop by and take a look. Library staff will be on hand to talk about the proposals and to collect ideas and suggestions to help the Council work up a final business case. 

Proposals include improvements and redecoration to the library itself including the children’s and teen areas, new meeting rooms, spaces for hire and a new café area.

As well as plans for self-service technology, proposals also include the opportunity for local people to talk face to face with someone to get advice about accessing a range of local services. 

Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health, Noel Brown said this was an exciting opportunity to shape a new array of services to help Marlow residents ‘right on their doorstep’. 

He said: “Marlow Library is a beautiful building in a fantastic position and it has the potential to offer even more to the local community. We are eager to hear local people’s views about what they want and how new things could help make their lives easier.”

“We’ve already done something similar in Buckingham to help communities there, but the point is that each needs to be relevant to the community which is why local views are so important in designing a future business case for change. Please try and have your own say at the Library over the coming weeks.” 

The display will be available to view in the library from December 18 until the end of January. Final decisions on a scheme are expected to be made later in 2019.
