Wendover Community Library Interior Design Concept

Libraries Team, 16 May 2023 - Wendover Community Library Project

The interior design of the new library will have dementia and autism-friendly colour tones. The new Wendover Community Library interior designs have been shaped by feedback gathered from staff, volunteers and the residents.

Entrance/Tourist and Visitors Information

Wendover is the gateway to the Chilterns, attracting a lot of walkers and tourists. There is an opportunity for an enhanced offer for tourist and visitors information to help stimulate the local economy. The tourist and visitor information space will:

  • Offer local information such as maps, walking routes, attractions, merchandise from local businesses and exhibitions from local artists.
  • Support a sustainable library model by increasing footfall, enabling access to more services from the new library.
  • Offers opportunities for economic regeneration working in partnership with community groups and local businesses.

Proposed Adult Section

The main library space will house the majority of book stock. It will also have comfortable seating spaces to use for reading, study or social interaction.

  • Study spaces and public PCs will be dispersed in the library to allow flexibility of use.
  • The dementia friendly corner will house reminiscence collections, local history, dementia friendly activities and games. It will also have health and wellbeing resources to support carers and patients. Overlooking the community garden, this will be a tranquil space.
  • comfortable seating arrangements for work, study or social activities

Proposed Children’s Library

The new children’s library be twice the size of the current children’s library, relocated to the front of building with a glass exterior will increase visibility into the library. It will have:

  • new low level shelving to increase access and use
  • sensory equipment
  • comfortable seating, i.e. reading pods, sofa, stools and bean bags.
