A bright future for Cambridgeshire libraries

CCC’s Communities and Partnership Committee has unanimously agreed to progress our Future Libraries project – in partnership with Civic – to design future models of libraries for the county and, ultimately, the country.

The project follows on from the previous transformation work carried out by the Library Service that enabled the council to keep all libraries open, and to plan many new libraries and improve existing ones as part of future growth plans.

The project will see five archetypes of library models piloted in seven locations across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – Anchor of the High Street, Centre for Rural Life, Hub for the Region, (Re)animating Communities and Pop-Up for Reviving Community Assets.

The ambition is to prove these models in the pilot areas before rolling them out to all Cambridgeshire and Peterborough libraries over three years so that all libraries benefit. Members will be involved at each stage of the project and in particular in the design phase where engagement with local communities will be paramount.
