The statement highlights several recommendations of the Expert Review of public libraries in Wales which have been completed, including the Scoping report into future potential models of service delivery for public libraries, and the guidance issued on community-managed libraries. The Deputy Minister also refers to some of the successful schemes of the current library strategy, such as the modernisation programme with over 100 public libraries revamped by the end of March 2016 [details of many of them are on the Designing Libraries website], the all-Wales roll-out of Every Child A Library Member, and joint procurement. The Deputy Minister’s statement also makes reference to a potential new library strategy.
CILIP Cymru Wales has issued a response to the statement.
