Community libraries

Image of library books

The council is working closely with communities to help them run their own libraries.

In 2014 the council asked people for their views on whether communities could run their own libraries. Based on this feedback, the council agreed that:

  • the council would run 16 libraries 
  • support would be offered to enable community groups to run 36 libraries 
  • a mobile library service would provide a service to most villages without a static library 
  • an online library would be available 24 hours a day 

In December 2014 and June 2015, groups and individuals were invited to register their interest in running their local library.

32 community groups have registered an interest in running one of the 36 community libraries.
