Join the Library Conversation and you could win an iPad Mini

We want to hear your thoughts on our library services.

On Monday 27 June we’re launching the ‘Library Conversation’ – an open and honest chat about how libraries are used (or not used) and how they can be developed and improved for the future.

Whether you’re a regular visitor, haven’t been for a while or never use the library, the Library Conversation wants to hear your views, ideas and suggestions

A questionnaire will be available online and in libraries and there will be a chance to attend focus groups and meetings. You can also join in the conversation on the library’s Twitter and Facebook pages using the hashtag #PlymLibraries.

Feedback from the conversation will help to shape Plymouth’s Plan for Libraries, which will be made available for public consultation early next year.

Councillor Glenn Jordan, Cabinet Member for Culture, said: “Libraries provide so much more than they used to, from free books to eBooks, computers and Wi-Fi to resources for health, information and learning. They work with partners to offer work clubs and help people navigate the digital world, showing you how to get online for the first time and even teaching children how to code.

“As we plan for the future we want to make sure we understand what our customers value, what improvements they would like to see and what would encourage them to use libraries more. We want as many people as possible to join the conversation so we can make sure we are designing the library service that the people of Plymouth want and deserve.”

The conversation will run from Monday 27 June until Saturday 3 September and everyone who takes part will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad Mini. Click here to complete the questionnaire online (from Monday).
