Council launch library consultation

The council are consulting on how to change the library services to make them fit and affordable for the future and meet people's needs across the city. The scale of the reduction to the Council's budget means that efficiency savings alone will not be enough to cover the loss in funding. At this crucial point in time, the council want to look at the library services afresh, to see how they can work in new and different ways. This could mean developing, changing or relocating some services and reducing or closing others.
Research has identified a range of opportunities that they could explore and they want to know what we think of them. Opportunities to work differently include:

  • opening hours and the buildings libraries operate from
  • making library services more efficient
  • partnership working - collaboration with voluntary/community groups
  • volunteering to enhance the service
  • increasing income
  • new technology
You can complete the survey online on the council website www.sheffield.gov.uk/libraryreview
