This consultation closed on 17 May 2019. The text below is presented as it was when the consultation was live and will be updated when the results have been published.
We are asking for your views on our draft strategy for Ealing’s libraries over the next four years (2019 - 2023).
The draft strategy sets out our proposed approach to providing a modern, sustainable library service, while recognising the financial constraints that Ealing council faces and also the changes in the way people now use libraries.
Our strategy presents proposals for a needs-based library service. This means a library service where we prioritise our resources to achieve outcomes that will best meet the needs of those who live, work and study in Ealing.
We would like to hear from you whether you currently use a library in the borough or not. We particularly want to hear from you if you are interested in supporting local library services either as a volunteer or as a community organisation.
To take part in the consultation please read the consultation documents and event slides before completing a short survey to submit your views.
This consultation closed on 17 May 2019.
We will also be organising a number of public consultation events across the borough to gather direct feedback on our proposals.
What happens next?
Responses to the consultation will inform a final report to the council’s cabinet in July 2019. If the proposals contained in this consultation are accepted, based on the consultation and other relevant considerations, the new library service provision will start to be implemented from autumn 2019.
