The consultation on Libraries Inspire received over 45 responses (thanks everyone who responded). I’m now working with colleagues on analysing the responses and producing a document that summarises the responses and which will be publicly available. We’re also taking the views into account to produce a revised strategy.
In general the responses were positive and people welcomed the strategy, although several comments suggested that it wasn’t inspirational enough. Time for me to develop some inspirational thinking!
Over the coming months we’ll also be working with a new Minister and government. We expect to launch the new strategy autumn 2011 with grant funding effective from April 2012.
More information as it becomes available!
