Warwickshire County Council Libraries

Consultation period 14 November to 11 December

The consultation is looking into the opening hours of the county’s main libraries and can be accessed via the Warwickshire Library and Information Service blog www.libraryconsult.wordpress.com. There is an online survey, and general library opening hours proposal document, or the individual library plans.

The consultation got underway on Monday, November 14, and runs for four weeks and ask local people to decide on the opening hours of 16 libraries including:
• Leamington
• Lillington
• Rugby
• Southam

The consultation is on the future pattern of opening hours for libraries remaining under the Library and Information Service control.

The public consultation, is offering two options. The majority vote from the public will decide the future opening hours of the library
– the library customers will decide. It is therefore important for as many people as possible to engage with this consultation, either via the web, or by popping in to your local library and completing a survey.

The new opening hours will be introduced from March 31. More details will be available at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/libraries and www.libraryconsult.wordpress.com

Meanwhile, Warwickshire County Council continues to work closely with community groups around the county developing new community libraries. All of these should be open and operational by April 1, 2012.
