Scoping future options for public libraries in Wales

Cover image of report - child sitting at computerThe Expert Review of public libraries in Wales outlined 11 recommendations, one of which was to review future models of service delivery and to look at regional and national options (recommendation 10).

The Scoping a new public library service for Wales report has just been published and looks at the changing position of public library services in Wales and considers how services could be managed and delivered along different models in the future.

“The report concludes that there are 4 elements to the establishment of a more resilient public library service in Wales: co-located community hubs, regional delivery consortia, a national digital library service and a workforce strategy.” (Para 3)

The report is 40 pages long so if you’re pressed for time the executive summary is three pages long, and the conclusion is two pages long.

The report is available in English or Welsh.
