You are encouraged to share your views with the council on plans to stop the mobile library service from the 1st April 2015. This is one of a number of potential changes as the council looks to save £28 million from its budget.
Cllr Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesperson for Communities, wants people to be part of the consultation, which starts on Monday 3rd November.
Paper copies of the consultation are available to pick up from the mobile library and libraries across the borough. It is also available on the council’s consultation website consult.barnsley.gov.uk/portal.
The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
Feedback must reach the Council by the end of Friday 12th December.
The mobile library serves a number of areas, stopping at locations for twenty minutes every three weeks. It also visits ten schools and eight nursery groups across the borough. It offers people the opportunity to select and borrow new books.
A home delivery library service would continue to be available for any elderly or disabled library users who were unable to access a library building.
