Description

The new Boultham library has been environmentally designed to replace its unappealing predecessor with a welcoming, user-friendly community building. The new facility offers Lincolnshire its first self-service option and has drastically increased the facilities available in this socially diverse community.

This has been achieved by the provision of dedicated spaces in the form of a community meeting room and a state of the art training suite, which have allowed staff to work with external partners and cross directorate services to provide a variety of vocational and educational courses for all ages.
