Consultation on detailed plans for Dolphin Centre library
DARLINGTON Borough Council has launched a six-week consultation on how the central library could look and operate if it is moved to the Dolphin Centre.
The Council is seeking the public’s views on how a relocated central library service might look and operate. Plans for how the relocated library service could look have been drawn up and members of the public are welcome to comment on them.
The consultation ran until Friday, 11 November
Councillor Nick Wallis, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Local Environment, said: “Reading is a lifelong passion for so many people, as it constantly opens up new worlds of discovery whether you are aged eight or 88. I believe having the library and leisure services side by side in the Dolphin Centre will be a great opportunity to encourage more people to realise the magic of books.
“The responses from the earlier consultation about these proposals, as well as the consultation we are now undertaking about the design and service operation of the library service at the Dolphin Centre, will all be made available when we come to take decisions in the New Year.
“Even if you took part in the previous consultation earlier in the year, I would still encourage you to engage with this consultation as we are now asking people specifically about how the library service could look and work in the Dolphin Centre.”
New decisions about the library service will be made early next year, when councillors will consider the proposal to move the library service from Crown Street to the Dolphin Centre, as well as the future of Cockerton Library and the Mobile Library Service.
