Essex County Council (ECC) has published its draft vision for libraries in the county, the ‘Everyone’s library service 2022-2026 plan’ details how the council intends to transform the Library Service over the next four years into a modern, vibrant and sustainable service for all.
Helping children and adults improve their literacy, encouraging people to enjoy reading for pleasure and increasing the range of online resources available to customers are just some of the commitments made in the plan.
Among the proposals, the plan commits to keeping all 74 libraries open with investment in training and upskilling of the existing library staff.
Residents are encouraged to have their say on the draft plan from 1pm today either online in person at one of the engagement events planned early next year or via our customer service centre by calling 0345 6037633.
ECC would be very grateful if you are able to share these engagement opportunities through your channels. Feedback can be submitted between 26 November 2021 and 21 January 2022.
