Residents invited to engage on the principles guiding the service

Two online sessions are taking place on Monday 20 September for residents to discuss their views and ideas with the Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr Louise McKinlay.

In these sessions Cllr McKinlay will outline ideas for key principles to help guide the service and its future development.

Residents will be able to discuss these, as well as make suggestions and offer feedback.

Cllr McKinlay said: “I want to see libraries at the heart of our communities.

That is why we plan to invest in, enhance and protect the library service.

Talking to residents and library users about the key principles for the service is the first stage in our commitment to making this happen.

“It is really important that we engage with our residents on the key principles driving the strategy. I would like to hear from residents who are current library users but also from people who are not presently using the service, so we can better understand what they want from the service.

“All feedback and suggestions will be taken on board. This really is an opportunity for residents to help mould the future of our library service.”
