Mobile Library Consultation

18 Sep

Suffolk County Council are now consulting the public on the Mobile Library service, and how savings can be made.

More information can be found on the consultation here, and the consultation paper can be found online here, or in paper in any public library.

In the 2010 Modernisation Review of Public Libraries, Suffolk’s mobile service was shown as an example of best practice in the ‘Stronger Communities’ section, noting that the mobile service

“has longer stops for community activities allowingother advisers and services to reach rural communities. New satellite dishes on the vans provide full online use of the internet and the library catalogue’.

Mobile libraries are a lifeline to those who can’t easily make it to a public library, hopefully the Council will carry out this consultation with more grace and intelligence than the full library consultation.
