Have Your Say: Library Development Plan

The public consultation period for the Consultative Draft Library Development Plan has now ended. Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill in the survey or to attend one of the library sessions. The feedback received is now being collated and updates will follow.

On 27 May 2015, the Board of Falkirk Community Trust approved the consultative draft.  The purpose of the plan is to shape a library service that is valued by the local community, appropriate to customers’ expectations, well used and yet affordable for the Trust to deliver.

The consultation is a ‘call to arms’ to staff, users, non-users and library advocates to become involved.  It is an opportunity for debate and discussion and to generate ideas and suggestions that will help give direction to the way ahead for library services in Falkirk and how to keep our library service valued, relevant, well-used and sustainable.

The consultation will run from 19 June - 11 September 2015 and there are different ways of having your voice heard:

  • drop-in sessions have been scheduled in all libraries throughout July and August (dates are listed below);
  • through our online questionnaire, using this link or the embedded survey below;
  • you can give informal feedback to staff in your local library;
  • you can comment on our Facebook page and via our Twitter feed.

Copies of the draft will be available to look at in all local libraries. Alternatively, you can download the draft Development Plan here.
