Sandeep Mahal, Director of Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature responds to the findings of the consultation into Nottingham's proposed new library:

"The fantastic response to the consultation shows how important the central library is to the people of Nottingham, and how their needs can vary enormously. This feedback is crucial in helping the city form a framework to take the central library service forward. We know that libraries are more than books, IT services and buildings.

They are about people, places and partnerships and we need to apply these basic principles when designing a new central library. I hope the city council will continue to listen throughout the design and build process and work closely with the local community to deliver an imaginative, sustainable and well-used central library for years to come".
