Hampshire County Council - Consultation on Proposed Changes to Libraries

Hampshire County Council is asking people who live, work and study in Hampshire to have their say on proposed changes to library services.

A 10-week public consultation opened on 9 January 2020 asking for your views on:

  • the emerging vision for Hampshire’s libraries to 2025;
  • the level of need for library services in specific local communities;
  • proposed changes to library services and the potential impacts; and
  • any alternatives that respondents may wish to propose.

The consultation is open until Wednesday 18 March 2020. Feedback received will inform decisions to be made by the Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage in summer 2020. No decisions will be made on any of these proposals until people have had the opportunity to give their views.

If you know others who would like to take part, they too can have their say, by visiting hants.gov.uk/library-consultation or filling in a printed copy from any Hampshire County Council library. Alternative formats are available on request.
