Future of Bishop's Castle library

11 August 2015 Last updated at 02:07

We are looking at how library services can be embedded in to the communities that they serve in a sustainable and cost-effective way. This is against the backdrop of a savings target of £1.3 million for the library service.

The thoughts and views about the future of  Bishop’s Castle library are being sought from the community.

The proposal for Bishops Castle is to work in partnership with Enterprise South West who would take over the day to day running of the library in its present location in Enterprise House.

The aim would be to provide a vibrant and modern library facility that meets the needs of the whole community.

We're now seeking responses to proposals relating to the future delivery of the library service in Bishops Castle. These proposals are detailed in this consultation document. We want to stress that as no formal decision has yet been made, there is also an opportunity for alternative proposals to be made. The information we receive through the consultation will be used to inform any decision making on the future delivery of the library service and the management of the library building within Enterprise House.

Anybody wishing to find more information and to leave feedback can do so through the consultation which will close on 31 August 2015.
