Shropshire Libraries Consultation

Residents and organisations across Shropshire are being asked their views to help shape what library services will look like in the future.

Shropshire’s new draft Library Services Strategy, which details proposed plans to ensure all Shropshire residents continue to have access to a library service, was confirmed by Cabinet on 12 July 2017.

The strategy sets out the council’s vision to unlock the huge potential that library services have to impact positively on individuals’ lives. It also recognises that this is a challenging time for library services – traditional usage has been declining in recent years, the way that people use library services is shifting, and the financial situation remains difficult.

The survey closes on Friday 6 October 2017. During the ten weeks the survey is running, Shropshire Council will also meet with community groups who currently manage some of the libraries, library friends groups, town and parish councils and staff to discuss the proposals and seek feedback.To take part in the survey visit the Council’s Get Involved section. Paper copies of the survey will also be available from libraries and mobile libraries.
