Libraries for Derbyshire: Public Library Service Strategy Consultation

Thu, 07 Jun 2018 10:36 by Laura Storey

We have launched our 12 week public consultation for our proposed public library service strategy Libraries for Derbyshire. You can complete our consultation questionnaire at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/librariesforderbyshire

As part of the consultation we have organised drop in sessions across all 45 libraries in Derbyshire for people to meet with us and to discuss our proposals in person. In addition, in the 20 communities proposed for community managed libraries we have arranged focus groups for anyone interested in getting involved to give their views, discuss any practicalities and challenges and decide if they want to take their interest further. More »

We are also holding a Mobile Library Service focus group to look at alternative methods of delivery for the Mobile Library Service. For example, community organisations running the mobile library service or possibly providing transport to the nearest static library for those that need it.

The Mobile Library Service focus group is on Wednesday 11th July 6-8pm at Members Room, County Hall Matlock.

I would be grateful if you could display the attached focus group poster in your building and encourage as many residents to engage with this process.

To read our proposed strategy and to find out more details on all our consultation events, including details on how to book your tickets for the focus group please go to our dedicated library strategy webpage www.derbyshire.gov.uk/librariesforderbyshire

Many thanks,

The Plain Playing Field

Sun, 20 May 2018 09:48 by Laura Storey

Brailsford's Playing Field has fabulous potential for everyone in the village to enjoy, and now its officially ours we want to make the most of it. While we're busy checking out a grant or two, the newly formed Working Party are keen to hear your ideas about the best use of the space in the future - to add to the suggestions from the school children's competition.

Whether you're 2 or 92, we'd love to see you at Brailsford Institute on Saturday 14th July from 2pm-5pm. There'll be free tea and cake (yes, you did just read that correctly - free) and a bit of entertainment too! Bring your neighbours, your ideas ... and your sensible shoes. All welcome.
