Lincolnshire County Council are asking residents for their views on the future of Spilsby Library.
Questionnaires are being sent out to all homes in the Spilsby area, asking residents how they would like to see their local library services develop.
Councillor Eddy Poll, Executive Member for Cultural Services, said: “While we’ve no plans to close any of our libraries, the service will have to evolve, if it’s to remain affordable. In Spilsby, we’re considering relocating the library to either the Co-op Food Store or the Methodist Chapel. We want to know what residents think about this.
“We’d also like to see volunteers become more involved in the running of the library, so we’ll be trying to gauge local interest in this. And it’s also a chance for residents to tell us what’s important to them in terms of what the library has to offer, as well as letting us know their views on opening hours.
“We’d really value your views, so please get involved and have your say.”
The questionnaires will be delivered the week commencing 13 August and will need to be returned by Monday 17 September to one of the following places:
Spilsby Town Council Office, Franklin Hall
Spilsby Post Office
A copy of the questionnaire is being sent out to approximately 4,000 local people in the town and surrounding area during the week commencing 13 August. Paper copies can be collected from the Spilsby Library from 6 August, or you can download a copy from our ‘Article Attachments’ section to the right.
