Mobile library under threat

Created on 07/07/2013 @ 07:07


Villages in the Welshpool area could lose their mobile library service in a review which promises cuts to the service.

Powys council wants to "improve" the scheme and wants users to fill out a questionnaire in order to gather information.

There are four mobile libraries visiting mainly rural areas every week, making 440 stops across the county.

A council spokesman said it was "too early to say" if mobile units would be cut.

"It might be the case that this stays but there are fewer stops," he added.

Graham Brown, cabinet member responsible for libraries, said: "There is a high level of satisfaction with our mobile library service but usage is low, with only one or two people at many stops.

"We would like to hear your views and ideas to help improve the current situation with our mobile library service.

He added: "We will use your feedback to help us deliver a more cost effective service, tailored to the needs of the more rural communities in Powys."

The council has made questionnaires available from libraries. The closing date for responses is July 31.
