Derbyshire Mobile Library Service
What this consultation is about
Reductions in Government grants, inflation and greater demands on areas of our budget for adult social care and vulnerable children mean we must re-think the way we deliver services.
It means some services will remain, some will be run differently but some will have to stop.
Four potential options to make savings on mobile library services were approved for consultation by our Cabinet in December and residents were asked to have their say in a two-stage process.
At The Stage 1 a questionnaire asked for:
- your views about these proposals
- your ideas about other ways we could save money on library services
- your ideas about how we could work with the community to minimise the effects of a reduced mobile library service on local people, especially the most vulnerable, including those who would find it difficult to get to a branch library.
As a result of the Stage 1 consultation, we are now proposing to retain a service operated by two vehicles working to a monthly timetable.
By looking at the draft service timetable and completing the accompanying questionnaire, you can now give us your views on this proposal. You can complete the questionnaire via the Derbyshire Mobile Library Service - Stage 2 (opens in a new window) web page.
