Weeks left to have a say on possible library closures
People have just over a month to have their say on the future of Lincolnshire's libraries.
In light of declining usage and the need to save £2m per year, LCC is currently asking people for their views on the best shape for library services in the county.
Councillor Nick Worth, executive member for libraries, said: “So far, we've received around 2,500 questionnaires, as well as 350 individual letters/emails. We've had eight consultation events around the county, attended by around 220 people, and there have been more than 5,000 visits to our consultation webpages.
"A range of views have been offered on the initial proposals. Some people would like to see libraries become multi-use buildings, incorporating other services such as cafes and heritage centres. Others have suggested ways of raising income or extending the choice of services on offer. Another key theme is the right balance between council-run libraries, community libraries and mobile libraries."
