Have your say on our £500,000 investment in this important Kendal building

We want to talk to you about our plans for developing this amazing building in Kendal.

This is already a fantastic library, but we want to make it even better with even more on offer. So as well as books, Local Studies and everything you’d expect we’re also thinking about how new digital technology could be integrated and how the building could be used more flexibly. Perhaps to host events, exhibitions or provide a space for community groups or just to meet socially with family and friends. We’re really open to your ideas about how we can make the most of this exciting opportunity.

A draft design for the proposed changes has been developed and now we want to hear the public’s thoughts.

The proposed designs are available to view online at

We want your feedback on our proposed design. We want to know whether the changes would work for you, your family and your friends.

Please provide your feedback by 27 June 2021.

Once the public consultation has closed we will use your feedback to reconsider our proposed design, with a view to publishing the final agreed design in July 2021.
