The Hive

baby changing facilities icon Shop icon Study area icon Wheelchair access icon

The Hive has been 10 years in the making and came about due to the vision and commitment of two key partners; the University of Worcester and Worcestershire County Council.

The ambition of creating a joint library, the first of its kind, was rooted in the following core values that still form the backbone of what The Hive is today:

Inspiration
Connection
Aspiration
Learning
Integration
Inclusivity
Enduring Values
Well-being
Sustainability
Visibility

"We always had the big idea – we were always talking about the learning experience and delivering something that had not been seen before. There is an aspiration that members of the public will be working alongside university students."
Kathy Kirk Worcestershire County Council’s Strategic Libraries and Learning Manager
