THERE is still time to comment on a strategy designed to enhance Swindon’s library service and make it more sustainable.

The council wants to hear views of the public and anyone interested in llibraries.

The draft library strategy can be viewed on the Library Strategy Consultation webpage at

Coun Keith Williams, cabinet member for Highways, Strategic Transport and Leisure, who is responsible for libraries, said: “We are facing unprecedented financial challenges and have to find savings of £48m over the next three years. To do that we need to look closely at how we deliver services and make changes to reflect our financial position.

“I would urge anyone who values and has an interest in the library service to let us know how they would like to see the service operate in the future so we can shape the service to meet their needs.”

The consultation will run until 5pm on April 14 and people can email their views to:
