Have Your Say About Ealing's Library Proposals
A series of meetings coming up
Residents will get the chance to have their say on the council’s proposed changes to the library service at a series of meetings being held across the borough.
The council launched a six-week consultation earlier this month urging residents to go online and share their views on the future of the library service, including bringing community groups and volunteers in to help run libraries.
The council is being forced to save £65million across all of its services over the next three years following a massive reduction in the funding it receives from central government. Options to save money include exploring alternative ways of running the borough’s libraries.
The meetings will be held from 7 – 8.30pm on the following dates:
Councillor Kamaljit Dhindsa, cabinet member for Customer and Community Services, said: “We have set up these meetings because we want to give residents a chance to give us their views about the future of the libraries service. I would urge everyone with an interest in libraries to complete the online questionnaire and come along to one of the consultation events.”
For more information or to complete the questionnaire visit www.ealing.gov.uk/consultations. Anyone without access to a PC can fill in the questionnaire at any of the borough’s libraries or request a hard copy.
The deadline for responses to the consultation is Tuesday, 3 May.
