Library service review (Phase two)

The Council has sought the views of both users and non-users of the library service in regard to 6 principles developed to guide the future of libraries in the borough. These principles were strongly supported in the results of a public survey and in follow-up workshops.

For phase two of the review process, options for the possible configuration of the library service were put to Council Cabinet on Wednesday 25 January 2017. Those proposals were approved by Cabinet. As such there will now be a further public consultation, including a new survey, which will run from 2 February 2017 to 27 April 2017. Paper copies of the new survey will be available at all libraries along with a reference copy of the report that went to Cabinet. There is also an online version of the survey available via the link below.
