You provided a huge range of ideas and suggestions, which you can read in the report here.

But our No.1 message to take away is:

We have a big place in our hearts and minds for libraries and museums and the role they play in communities. We are excited by the opportunities this new facility brings to Southwark and Walworth.

All the ideas you provided will be shared with the design team who are developing the concept design for the new Library and Heritage Centre. This design will be brought back to the community later in the year.

Overview

Southwark Council is going to open a new library and heritage centre on the Walworth Road. Bringing these two services together creates some great opportunities for new ways of using the facility and sharing knowledge. We want to encourage lots of new people to this unique place and inspire everyone with fascinating stories about Southwark and objects from our collections. We need to hear your bright ideas for what could be done and how you would like to use the space.  Of course if you are happy with a space to read a book you can tell us about how to make that better too.

This is the first phase in developing this new facility. If you want to stay involved and be informed as the project develops, make sure you give us your contact details.
