Mobile Library consultation begins

Feb 3 , 2014 - Mon - 9:00 am


"Proposals on recommendations to replace the Council’s existing mobile library and mobile one stop services with a range of community based initiatives will go out for a 12 week public consultation from Monday 03 February 2014.

Cornwall Council cabinet member for partnerships Adam Paynter said: “The existing mobile service is facing a 50% budget cut and we are undertaking this 12 week consultation on plans to potentially cease the mobile library and mobile one stop shop service, replacing it with a number of community based initiatives. We want the views of service users and partners as we consult on the possibility of delivering these services in a different way.”

The Mobile Services Consultation is available online and the Council will also be attending Community Network meetings across Cornwall to discuss proposals with communities, members and Parish/Town Councils.

A hard copy of the consultation questionnaire will also be available in the mobile library and mobile one stop vans as well as at the static libraries and one stop shops and will ask if you currently use the mobile services; what do you think of the services and will ask for your opinion on whether you think the services could be delivered in a different way."
