The Future of the Library Service in Derby Phase 2

Consultation Details

Title: The Future of the Library Service in Derby - Phase two
Start date: 19/09/2016
Closing date: 14/12/2016
Status: Closed
Why are we consulting?

Between November 2015 and February 2016 we consulted with you on ways of reducing our spending on libraries, while still protecting a service that is valued by thousands of people from across the city. Using information from the consultation and other sources we have developed some options for the future of the Library Service.

The key message from the first phase of consultation is that the majority of respondents want the Council to try its best to avoid closures, and are willing to consider community management and shared premises in order to make this a reality.

This feedback has helped shape the four options described in the cabinet report, which was taken to Council Cabinet on 3 August 2016.

The purpose of the current consultation is to seek feedback from local people, including library users and other stakeholders, on the options for the future. By taking part you will be helping to shape the future of the Library Service in Derby and ensuring that we make the best possible use of the money we have available.

People who live, work or study in Derby, both users and non users of Derby libraries.
