Stockton Heath Library - public engagement events

Thursday 01 November 2018 10:30 - 12:00

Local people are being invited to find out more about the exciting plans for Stockton Heath Library..

A series of public engagement events begin this month, giving residents the opportunity to view the plans to build a sustainable future for the library, widen its usage and extend its role in the community.

The plans, which have been developed by the South Warrington Libraries Working Group; and SWISH (Friends of the South Warrington Library in Stockton Heath), include:

  • Upgrading the building for provision of rental areas to ensure income streams
  • Widening the scope of community engagement with library provision and activities
  • Adapting the library to better accommodate the range of local needs/disabilities such as dementia or sensory disability
  • Increasing the building flexibility to extend the potential range of activities, such as literary events or cultural presentations

Warrington Borough Council’s executive board member for leisure and community, Cllr Tony Higgins, said: “We have made a commitment to build a sustainable future for our libraries, and we are now delivering on that commitment. I’m delighted that the investment promises we have made are now coming to fruition – not only at Stockton Heath, but at libraries across the borough.

“The Stockton Heath Library plans are great example of what we can achieve, by working with communities and partners. I’d urge all local people to attend one of the engagement events, to find out more about the exciting plans and to ask any questions they may have about the future of the library.”

The sessions are as follows:

  • Thurs 1st Nov: 10.30am-12 noon
  • Sat 3rd Nov: 11am-12.30pm
