Council want library views

Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council
Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council

Doncaster Council is asking residents for their views on the future of 14 libraries across the borough.

The council said that by the end of last week more than 60,000 questionnaires would be distributed.

It has also said meetings with residents would be held to ensure the views of everyone would be heard.

The move comes after the authority’s cabinet decided in March to postpone plans to close 14 of the borough’s 26 libraries for a year. It is planning on investing money in the remaining 12 and is looking at how to provide library services in the affected neighbourhoods.

Residents have until July 8 to return their completed questionnaire..

The outcome of the consultation will be made available in libraries.
