A public consultation about refreshing Shropshire Council's library strategy has been launched so the new version can reflect local priorities and needs, including Oswestry and Whitchurch

The consultation will be available to complete online and will run until November 8 this year.

The current library strategy includes a three-tier system which informs how resources would be financed and managed over a five-year period, started in 2017.

Two years on it has been identified that a refreshed strategy, that offers a robust vision with clear priorities for the library service of the future, is needed.

Lezley Picton, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member culture, leisure, waste and communications, said residents' views are being sought.

She said: “Shropshire Council recognises that there is a need for a new library strategy following a period of significant change for our library services.

“This is a great opportunity for you to help shape the library of the future and help us deliver a dynamic and inclusive library service for the people of Shropshire.”

There will be an event at Oswestry Library on Monday from 10am until 3pm while on Friday, October 11 it will run from 1pm to 4pm.
