Library Consultation

Derbyshire County Council has a consultation currently live on the draft Public Library Service Strategy ‘Libraries for Derbyshire’ consultation. Seeking views on the following proposals in the draft strategy:

That the libraries in 20 communities in Tier 4 will be transferred to community management
That the community-managed libraries are retained as part of our statutory network
That we will implement a tiered approach, which will be used to decide on provision and resources for libraries in the future
That there will be a reduction in weekly opening hours across the library service
That there will be a reduction in the materials fund (books, audiobooks, eBooks, eMagazines, eAudio, online resources like Newsbank and newspapers)
That voluntary and community organisations will be consulted with a view to creating an alternative way of delivering the mobile library service
That the future implementation of Smart Libraries be considered
That the DVD hire loan service will cease
That feedback will be gathered and considered on the potential impact of the proposals.

The Town Council responded to the consultation and do not support the proposal. The Town Council are concerned that there will be 5 hours loss of opening times and surrounding areas will be closed or further reduced which will have a further impact on Alfreton Library.
