A new library for Aylesbury

On Monday 24th July Cabinet formally agreed a proposal to integrate lending and reference provision in Aylesbury and to undertake community engagement on the design for a new and modern library for Aylesbury. The County Council agreed an investment of £366,000 for the new library but the new integrated arrangement will save £87,000 a year.

The current arrangement, with lending and reference resources split over two sites, is inefficient and does not reflect the needs of our customers. The absence of a 'shop-front' makes the study centre difficult to find for some customers and disabled access is unsatisfactory. The study centre services and resources will move from the existing space in County Hall and all library services will be then be delivered from the current lending library 'shopfront' premises on Walton Street.

The outline design offers an attractively refurbished modern library with self-service technology, improved children's facilities, new teenage area, two meeting rooms, improved toilet and baby changing facilities and increased opening hours.

Detailed drawings or confirmed designs have not yet been agreed as the intention is to share the broad elements of the design with customers and residents at a series of presentations and open days.

Have your say... 

We would like to hear from our customers and residents about what you would like us to include when we design the layout and services for your new, state-of-the-art library. Please complete this survey by 30th September 2017.
