Views sought on library services
Date published: 24 January 2018
Smallbridge Library in Rochdale is one of 17 branches across the borough
The views of local residents are being sought about the services provided in local libraries.
The consultation is running until 16 February and the library survey can be accessed online (see link below) and will also be available at all library branches.
Councillor Janet Emsley, cabinet member for libraries, said: “We have one of the best library services across Greater Manchester with fantastic staff across 17 branches.
"Standing still is not an option though and we want to make our services even bigger and better; our branches are much more than a book lending service, important as that is.
"This consultation is about listening to people’s views as we invest in the future of our local libraries and enter a new chapter of service delivery.”
Councillor Allen Brett, leader of the council, said: “Our 17 branches are there to be enjoyed by all ages. We particularly want to engage with young people to reiterate that libraries can be vibrant, fun places, not just quiet places where people get told to be quiet.”
