Cheltenham Road Library remains open for business as usual, although it will be put on the market for sale in the near future. There is still time for people to leave their ideas and thoughts about the new building at the Wishing Tree in the foyer. The library service is particularly keen to establish a Friends Group for the new library and would like to hear from anyone interested in finding out more about this. 

Kate Murray, Head of Libraries said, “We believe that an active Friends Group can be a vital part of shaping the life of the new facility. Working in partnership with the library staff, they can act as a link to the local community, helping to deliver a range of events and activities that can make the library a real focus for everyone in the area.”

If you would like more information about the Friends of Bishopston Library or have any other thoughts on the new facility please contact: Denis Wise, Library Development Officer, Bristol Libraries: denis.wise@bristol.gov.uk
