Library Move to West Dorset Council Offices Well Underway


4:01pm 2nd April 2013

Work to fit out Dorchester's new library and adult learning centre is now well underway.

The combined services have been moved to West Dorset District Council's new offices in South Walks.

The new centre is expected to open in July.

Library and learning resources will be spread across the three floors, including extra books and an improved children's library area with a family learning room, plus public access computers and self-service units for book, CD and DVD issues. There will be areas for reading, quiet study and browsing.

Three classrooms and an IT suite will be dedicated to adult learning and, when not in use, the classrooms will be available for use as meeting rooms by local community organisations.

The building will also feature toilets, baby changing facilities and access to all floors by lifts and stairs.

Cllr Hilary Cox, the council's Cabinet member for adult and community services, said:

"I am delighted work on fitting out the new library and adult learning centre is getting underway. It will provide the town and its surrounding area with better, more accessible facilities, offering benefits to people of all ages and interests."
