About this Consultation

Imagine if the library was a venue for other cultural activities. The public library has books to borrow, computers to use and provides access to information and events. But it could also be used for other things too - talks, meeting space, debate, space for arts and crafts, play, music? The Arts Council is interested in helping libraries to expand what they can offer, and what they can make available for residents, communities and creative industries.

We are asking people, artists and arts organisations and businesses in the towns of Weymouth & Gillingham and surrounding areas - what else would you like to see happening in your town library? The consultation runs from 6th February until 8th March 2017.

Who are we? Sandy Kirkby, Sue Palmer and Sally Watkins have been asked by Dorset Library Service to compile a report on the potential for libraries to work with others to offer more creative opportunities and events for residents.  

 Please complete either:

The community survey.

The artists and art organisations survey
