Libraries for Derbyshire: Public Library Service Strategy Consultation

Posted: 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

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.

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

Many thanks,
