Share your ideas for long-awaited library

LATER this year, Cheltenham Road Library will be closing its doors and moving up the Gloucester Rd to a new venue in the former swimming baths site in Bishopston.

The new venue will be a purpose–built space that can host a range of events and activities as well as the usual library resources of books and magazines, DVDs, children’s area and computers.

The library service is keen that local people should play a part in helping to ensure that the new library has the kind of programme and uses that local people and community groups would like to see and support.

To encourage people to share their ideas, there will be opportunities for them to call in to Cheltenham Road Library and leave their ideas and suggestions at either the wishing tree or in a suggestion box. There will also be the chance for people to drop in for coffee, cake and chat on Friday May 27, 11am-5pm.

Ideas can also be submitted by email to
