Scenario Oldcross Borough Council, Department of Community Services have proposed a cultural centre/library, to be constructed on derelict council owned land near the centre of Oldcross to replace the current inadequate library provision.
The wish of the Director of Community Services is to provide a facility for adults, juniors and teenagers with lending of books, cassettes, compact discs, videos, computer software, talking books and books in large print. Daily newspapers and magazines will be available in a comfortable seating area with a franchised coffee vending outlet.
Games consoles and internet accessible computers will be provided in two rooms (one room for play and one room for study).
A flexible space will accommodate open learning and Chamber of Commerce and other meetings.
A display area will accommodate temporary cultural displays and large plasma display screens will advertise community events.
The library shop will supply any book in print, videos and DVD’s with a target 10% discount on the normal retail price. The library shop will stock a range of local history publications, postcards, maps, stamps, magnifying sheets, greetings cards, wall charts and educational books
