Herts Library Consultation—Please Act

Hertfordshire County Council are currently looking at making further budget cuts to their services, including library services. The latter play an immensely important role in our communities, bringing people together and supporting them with an incredibly wide range of services.  Our school has built up a wonderful relationship with North Watford Library where they continue to offer us special events and support us in our literacy aims. Shortening opening hours, losing experienced and qualified staff, minimising services, outsourcing - these would all impact on us if implemented. Section 7 of the Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964 states: "It shall be the duty of every library authority to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service for all persons desiring to make use thereof". Please take some time to complete their online questionnaire at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/libraryconsultation before 18th February. Thank you.
