RESIDENTS are invited to attend the choice of two ‘Everyone’s Library Service 2022-2026’ webinars on Monday 10 January.
These sessions will be hosted by Deputy Leader, Cllr Louise McKinlay, who will give an oversight on the draft plan and updates on the survey. There will also be some time for questions on the new Draft Library Plan.
Helping children and adults improve their literacy, encouraging people to enjoy reading for pleasure and increasing the range of online resources available to customers are just some of the commitments in the Draft Library Plan, which was launched in November.
It also commits to keeping all 74 libraries open with investment in training and development for library staff.
Everyone is invited to attend the webinars; sessions are detailed below.
