Bristol Libraries invite users to share their ideas

December 19 2018

Have you got ideas or suggestions for your library and its building? Can you help make these ideas happen?

Bristol Libraries are inviting you to come along to  a community events running from January, which will bring local people and organisations together to look for opportunities for community-led activities and partnerships to create a library service for the future. 

A spokesman said: "This is everyone’s opportunity to work together to pilot new ideas.  

"The library service is greatly valued but it needs to change to be more relevant to the neighbourhood and local people.  We need to work together to create a library service which will serve future generations and be well connected to everything else that’s going on in the local area.  

"This is your chance to be part of it – just come along with your ideas." 

The following events are taking place – the libraries being discussed at each event are detailed in the listing – please book on to the relevant one for the library you are interested in.
