Mobile Library Consultation

The Borough Council has already carried out two consultations on the future of the Library Service, with a view to modernising services and delivering savings, following ongoing cuts from central government.
The Borough Council is now asking for residents views on how the Mobile Library and Library Link services can deliver a more efficient service through optimisation of their routes and timetables.

The Mobile Library service operates five days a week, visiting 40 communities and making a total of 182 stops per month. The Library Link service serves residents who are unable to reach their local library operates 20 routes around the Borough per month, making regular visits to individual housebound users, residential homes, and sheltered housing schemes.

Having reviewed the locations, proposed changes to the timetable would mean some stops will be more frequent and some less frequent. However no village or care home will lose its service.
