Mobile Library and Library Link Services Protected

 

Following a consultation earlier this year which saw over 80% of respondents agreeing with the proposals, changes are being introduced to the Mobile Library and Library Link service.

 

These changes will see the timetable reorganised in response to the consultation results by targeting stops where they are most needed in the community, and every village and care home that currently receives the service will continue to.  Residents will also benefit from new Mobile Library and Library Link vehicles, bringing an improved and more cost efficient service.

 

The Mobile Library service takes our fantastic libraries on the road visiting communities across the Borough, while the Library Link service serves residents who are unable to reach their local library making regular visits to individual housebound users, residential homes, and sheltered housing scheme.

 

The new routes will be in place from Monday 2nd October. In the weeks leading up to this, customers will be given information about any changes which affect them and the timetables will be published on the Borough website.

 

Cllr Sarah Holland, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “Thank you to everyone who responded to the consultation. There was an overwhelmingly positive response, and further adjustments have been made to the new timetable where issues were raised through the consultation process.  The Council is facing a huge financial challenge, but we are continuing to protect and improve our library service with every single one of our libraries staying open including our Mobile Library and Library Link services.”
