Glos libraries consultation

The way people use libraries is changing, and Gloucestershire's residents are being urged to have their say on how existing services can be shaped to continue to play a key role in their local communities.

There is an online questionnaire here. I completed the form before I realised they were looking primarily at libraries in Stonehouse, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Brockworth.

One point I made - and indeed have spoken to the County's library boss about - is the failure of GCC to use the libaries to properly support their policies - for example to educate us about climate change - here is a perfect opportunity to reach many different people and encourage actions like insulation etc.
