A SURVEY has been launched ahead of plans to improve a Southampton library.

Bosses at Cobbett Road Hub and Library, in Bitterne Park, want to update the facility, with a view to make it suitable for hiring.

But in order to secure funding, library chiefs need to consult with members of the public to get their views.

Library manager, Wendy Lee, said: "We want to know what residents would come to the venue for and how we can develop it to suit the community’s needs.

"Apart from this we need to ensure we have consulted the community in order to apply for funding to update areas of the library to make it suitable for hiring."
