Note from the County Council
More than 10,000 residents have already responded to the Future of Hertfordshire Libraries consultation, launched on 21 October 2013. We are sending out a new wave of publicity this week to remind people that there is less than a month to go before the closing date of 31 December 2013.
This exercise provides a unique opportunity for us to seek the views of Hertfordshire residents on their priorities for the library service over the next 10 years. The results will inform the development of a new strategy, which will set the future direction of the service, and determine how we address the social, technological and financial challenges of a changing world. We want to encourage as many people as possible to contribute their views in order to ensure that we continue to provide high quality library services that are relevant to the needs of local communities.
Further details, including a link to the online questionnaire and times for the remaining public meetings and drop-in sessions are available at http://www.hertsdirect.org/services/libraries/libraryconsultation.
