Library service review

Since receiving the final judgement from the Judicial Review into our proposals for the county’s library service, we have undertaken a Needs Analysis and a review of the whole library service.

The resulting proposals for Community Managed Libraries were approved by Cabinet on 14 May 2019. These proposals involve working with community organisations to develop bespoke library services to serve the needs of individual local communities.

We are currently in a transition period as the final details are worked out with individual community organisations to achieve handover into community management.

Further detail will be made in the future cabinet reports which will be available on our Committee Management Information System (CMIS).
