31 broad street project launch

In order to inform the future development of the library and museum facilities in Hereford, the 31 broad street group is gathering information and inspiration from elsewhere in the world.

One of the leading international library development and design consultancies, The Ministry of Imagination, has agreed to visit Hereford to share their expertise through a series of workshops sponsored by the Pippin Trust.

From 10am – 12noon on Thursday 2nd March, the Ministry of Imagination team will be on our stand in the Broad Street building.  Come along and meet them and see some of their work from libraries in Holland, and discuss your ideas and hopes for the future of the Hereford Library, Museum & Art Gallery building.

 

Hereford library to re-open on Tuesday 1st

Hereford library, museum and art gallery reopens Tuesday 31 January, following the phase one completion of building work at Broad Street.

The building was closed due to asbestos found on the site, but has provided the opportunity to modernise the library for the many users.  Spaces have been reconfigured to improve the customer experience, a suite of new PCs are available to use for free and the ceiling has been raised with new lighting. The county library will also welcome WISH (Wellbeing Information and Signposting for Herefordshire) which will operate from the main library as a shared facility to make the most of the building.

Hereford Museum and Art Gallery will launch an exhibition celebrating the life and work of Herefordshire artist Brian Hatton, with additional opening hours during the first two weeks.
