Spotlight on Staffordshire: Have your say on the future of your library

Libraries-generic-2Staffordshire County Council is giving you the chance to have your say on the future of your local library.

Until April 1, the council is running a series of consultations at libraries and travelling library stops throughout the county.

During these consultations, the possibility of using modern technology to maintain and extend library opening hours, ways of increasing the number of community managed libraries and the role of the travelling library service will be discussed.

Already over 700 people have taken part in the consultation.

Gill Heath, Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet member for Communities, said:

“We’ve spoken to the public a great deal in recent years about how best to keep all our libraries open and relevant to the communities they serve.

“We’re looking to take the next steps in that process and I’m delighted so many people have already been to find out more and contribute their thoughts to the process.”

She added:

“There are still plenty of meetings to go and I would urge people who are interested to have their say in person or in writing.”
