As has been highlighted by our District Councillor, Tiffany Osborne, a consultation has begun by Somerset County Council on its library services — this will conclude on 22 April.
Under the proposals, with 15 out of the county's 34 libraries, SCC are looking to close them or seek community support in order they can remain operational. If sufficient community involvement is not forthcoming, then services could be provided through either community outreach venues or additional mobile library stops.
Langport library is one of our local libraries where there are currently no proposed changes and along with books it provides a whole range of other services (e.g. online access, free WiFi, DVD lending) and activities, together with its professional librarians.
Should you wish to comment on the changes then go to: www.somerset.gov.uk/librariesconsultation or pick up a questionnaire at the library (The deadline is 22 April).
