It has just come to the notice of SDL Towers that, local consultation here now being over (hope you had your say) there is a National Consultation into the appalling current circumstance. Below is lifted from the South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau blog and was published there on March 6th. Not long now – take part please.
Two Government Departments have jointly commissioned a very rapid independent report on the current structure and role of English public libraries, including community libraries, as well as identifying any opportunities for future delivery.
Interested parties can tell the investigating panel what they think about the following:
- What are the core principles of a public library service into the future?
- Is the current delivery of the public library service the most comprehensive and efficient?
- What is the role of community libraries in the delivery of a library offer?
They’re asking, so make sure you tell them what you think!
Evidence must be received before 5pm on Friday 21 March 2014 and should be sent to:
Library Secretariat Department for Culture, Media and Sport 4th Floor 100 Parliament Street London SW1A 2BQ
