Keep Peterlee Library

Although we are delighted at the regeneration of the former college site and the relocation of the library to Peterlee Leisure Centre, this will come at a cost to our community.

Under current proposals, Peterlee will be without library services for at least nine months during the transition from the former college site to the leisure centre.

Library and IT services will be vital to assist local residents during the roll out of Universal Credit, which can only be claimed and managed online.

Peterlee Library is a community hub, supporting and accommodating multiple clubs and groups catering to all ages.     

The residents of Peterlee call on Durham County Council to provide temporary and accessible library provision in the Town Centre which can be accommodated within one of a number of empty shop units.
