A third public meeting has been planned to update people about the proposals for Sheffield’s Central Library and Graves Art Gallery.
This is a repeat of the public meeting first held on Tuesday, 6 December at the Town Hall. It follows Sheffield City Council’s announcement that, as part of the city’s partnership with Chinese construction company Sichuan Guodong Group, the company is looking at the feasibility of using the current Central Library building to develop the city’s first five star hotel, which would see the Central Library moved to another site in the city centre. There is a commitment to maintaining the art gallery with full public access, if the option of using the library building to develop a hotel becomes viable.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, 5 January, from 7pm to 9pm at the Town Hall. Spaces can be booked online.
The same presentation and information is being given at all public meetings and is available atwww.sheffield.gov.uk/libraries.
Councillor Jack Scott, Cabinet Member for Community Services and Libraries at Sheffield City Council, said: “We’re putting on another public meeting to let people know where we’re at with the proposals for the library. It’s great that so many people want to be involved and shows the passion we have for our libraries here in Sheffield.”
Due to high demand a second public meeting has been planned to update people about proposals for Sheffield’s Central Library and Graves Art Gallery.
Last week it was announced that Sheffield City Council is considering leasing the Surrey Street building to create the city’s first five star hotel, as the cost of repairs and upkeep is rapidly becoming unaffordable.
Almost all places have been booked for the first meeting which takes place from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on 6 December in Sheffield Town Hall.
A second meeting has therefore been planned for Friday, 16 December from 4pm to 6pm at the Town Hall. The meeting is likely to be popular, so pre-booking is essential.

People are invited to a public meeting next Tuesday to find out more about proposals for Sheffield’s Central Library and Graves Art Gallery. Last week it was announced that Sheffield City Council is considering leasing the Surrey Street building to create the city’s first five star hotel, as the cost of repairs and upkeep is rapidly becoming unaffordable. The building is also inaccessible to many people and is not likely to be able to offer a world-class central library service. The meeting will run from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on 6 December in Sheffield’s Town Hall. The meeting is likely to be popular, so pre-booking is essential.
