The LBWF library consultation ends on 31st January 2017. Take part in the survey NOW to keep our local libraries…


Have you filled in the second council library consultation survey? (Did you even know there was a second one to fill in?!)

Please take part (even if you did the last one!) and let the Council know that you want them to keep your libraries where they are, and invest in them.

The Council’s survey is online here: 

There are also paper copies available in your library.  The deadline for completion Tuesday 31st January 2017.

When filling in the survey please consider the following:

Survey Q1: “Taking everything into account, to what extent do you agree or disagree with the Council’s preferred option to relocate Higham Hill Library to the Community Hub in Priory Court?”

If you want to keep your local library, please make it clear you: ‘strongly disagree’ with Option 1

The Council’s preference is for ‘Option 1 – Relocation’. This effectively means that Higham Hill Library will be demolished, and Wood Street Library will be sold off and the service massively reduced.

Survey Q3. “Please tell us below if you have any comments on the options for Higham Hill Library (outlined in the table earlier in this survey and on our library consultation website) or if there are any alternative options to this proposal that you would like us to consider.”

We support ‘Option 2 – refurbish and restock’ – 

This means the libraries are kept where they are and the Council maintains and invests in them. You can explain your reasons for supporting this here.

Questions 4 & 6 relate to Wood Street Library – and we suggest the same response  – strongly disagree with Option 1 and support Option 2  -refurbish and restock.

The survey only takes 10 minutes and it’s our last chance to get our voices heard!
