The Paisley Learning and Cultural Hub will be a new modern community and educational facility in the town centre.
When it opens, the building will provide a new digitally-connected home for a range of services, including those currently offered at Paisley Central Library.
It will include:
- a comprehensive internal remodelling of the existing building, over four floors
- an attractive ground-and-first-floor frontage with a modern look – which complements the High Street surroundings and preserves the historic features on the building’s upper floors
- children’s library with areas for areas for reading, play, storytelling and learning
- IT areas and suite – offering free public digital access in the heart of the town centre
The project includes £1.5m funding from the Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Fund and is being delivered on behalf of the council by hub West Scotland who have appointed Collective Architecture to create the new design, and main contractor CCG to deliver the refurbishment.
