Have your say on library service

Library users in Lincolnshire are being given more time to share their ideas on the future of the service.

The county council is inviting people to put forward proposals for running the libraries within a reduced budget.

Executive member for libraries Coun Nick Worth said: “Last year, we ran an extensive consultation seeking views on our own proposal as to how best to make the necessary savings.

“The views that were shared have been heard loud and clear, and will again be taken into consideration in making a fresh decision.

“This period of consultation is another opportunity for people to put forward alternative ideas for providing a comprehensive and efficient library service within the available budget. We are open-minded, so if you have a proposal, please complete the survey.”

The consultation runs from October 1 to 31.

The quickest and easiest way to submit proposals is by filling in the online form at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/librariesconsultation, where you can also find details of the council’s proposal.

Alternatively take part at your local library or by call the customer service centre on Freephone 0800 022 4966 (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday).

Any other questions about taking part in the consultation can be sent to librariesfeedback@lincolnshire.gov.uk .

It is expected that the council’s executive will take a fresh decision on the future of the library service in February 2015.
