Plans to book branch library a new home


Les Quennevais Branch Library is turning over a new leaf, with plans to move to a new community centre home.

The move would see the Library get a five-year lease at St. Brelade’s Communicare Centre, which would open early in the new year.

It follows Infrastructure Minister Deputy Kevin Lewis recently signing a Ministerial decision to allow the centre to be leased.

While an initial two-year lease is expected to be signed for the space, there will be the possibility of a further three-year extension.

A drop-in session will be taking this evening between 16.00 and 18.00 at Communicare for islanders to find out more about the new plans.

Chief Librarian, Ed Jewell, said: “Communicare is an ideal space for a community library – it’s easily-accessible at the heart of the St. Brelade community, and it already hosts multiple community-based health and wellbeing groups.

“Moving to Communicare is an opportunity not just to find a new home for the library, but also to rethink how it can best serve the needs of the community. I’d encourage any interested islanders to come along to the drop-in session and help us ensure that this new space reflects what they need.”
