Doncaster Libraries Public Consultation
Doncaster Museums Service would like to assess the days when customers use or would like to use the Museum and Art Gallery on Chequer Road, and Cusworth Hall, with a view to revising opening times to best meet people’s needs.
Doncaster Libraries and the Museum Service would also like to understand whether customers would use the Local Studies Library, based at Central Library, and the Archives reading room, based at Archives in Balby, more easily and frequently if these services moved to Doncaster Museum. The rationale for considering this includes the fact that customers would not have to make three separate journeys for heritage-related purposes and enquiries, but just one journey, and the merging of these service areas in to one building will create a ‘Heritage Service’ which provides better value for money through more effective and efficient deployment of its resources.
To give feedback on proposed opening times and the proposed merger of these facilities in to one site, please ask a member of staff for a survey form at any of these locations: Cusworth Hall, the Museum, at the Archives Centre in Balby, or at the Local Studies Library at Central Library, or complete an online version here: bit.ly/dnheritagesurvey
The survey is open until Friday 21st March.
