Devon County Council and Libraries Unlimited, which runs Devon’s library service on the County Council’s behalf, have launched consultation today regarding improvements to the library service in rural and isolated communities in Devon. While libraries (static libraries) have evolved a lot over the years, introducing improvements to the services they offer and broadening their popularity to appeal to many, the mobile library and outreach service has remained unchanged. We want to consider the opportunities now to improve our mobile library and outreach service, to consider new ways that we might be able to reach more people in our rural communities.
I have attached a news article that we have sent to Devon media this afternoon. We would like all of the Devon Town and Parish Councils to be aware of the consultation and invite you to contribute to it. Details of the consultation and how to take part in the consultation are online here https://new.devon.gov.uk/haveyoursay/consultations/devon-library-outreach-service/. Details are also available via our library service, including the mobile and outreach library service.
