Delivering local solutions for public library services

Libraries are trusted spaces, free to enter and open to all. We know that people value the range of books, digital and other resources available but how people use libraries is changing. If we want our services to continue to be at the heart of communities for generations to come libraries must change as well.

Councillor development

Written for all councillors who have an interest in supporting the development of public library services, this guide will take you through the how and why of transformation in your area. Whether you are a portfolio holder with responsibility for libraries and wider cultural services, or a ward councillor who has campaigned tirelessly to keep a local library open in a period of cost-cutting and rationalisation, it will set out ways in which you can ensure your library service excels and meets the needs of your communities.
