Culture and Community

Culture and Community is responsible for libraries, adult learning, arts development and museums. Our aim is to help enrich lives by informing, entertaining, educating and inspiring. We work with communities, partner organisations and individuals to develop and deliver a huge range of activities, events and resources that add greatly to the quality of life of people living in Poole.

With ten branch libraries, a mobile library and a range of outreach services, Poole Libraries deliver services which have been recognised nationally for their effectiveness and efficiency.

Poole Adult Learning provide opportunities for thousands of local people to access a wide choice of education and training experiences.

Our Arts Development Team provide arts events and activities and work with a number of key partners including Lighthouse, Poole Centre for the Arts and the BSO.

Poole Museum reopened in July 2007 after a £1.3m redevelopment that has transformed the museum and has been enthusiastically praised by huge numbers of visitors.
