From 7 April until noon on 7 July 2014 Leicestershire County Council is consulting on the library service. Full details can be found online at:www.leics.gov.uk/haveyoursay/futurelibraries.

As part of the consultation and proposed changes the county council is proposing to continue operating the 16 most used libraries which cater for the majority of service users.

We know that the other 36 libraries are often a highly valued local amenity, which are often hubs for a range of other local activities. This is why we are proposing to develop a service that would enable community groups to manage their local library in partnership with the county council. We think these proposals could lead to an increased availability of the service as well as wider community use of the library buildings. In places such as Warwickshire, many libraries are now managed within a community and have managed to increase opening hours and access to the service. More »
