Time is running out to have your say

Somerset Council Press Release 
Anyone with an interest in Somerset’s libraries has one
more month to take part in the County Council’s consultation on
the future of its Library Service.
The consultation ends on Wednesday 13 June and more than
4,000 responses have been received so far.
Somerset County Council is keen for anyone yet to complete
the questionnaire to go online at
www.somerset.gov.uk/librariesconsultation,
view the proposal on the future of the library they visit most often
and give their feedback.Alternatively, complete the survey at your
local library. Decision makers want to know the impact potential
changes to the library service would have on you, your family and
communities. It also provides an opportunity to comment on the
proposals and make alternative suggestions.
Councillor David Hall, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member
with responsibility for libraries, said: “With just a month to go before
the library consultation ends, I encourage anyone who has yet to
have their say to complete a questionnaire and make their voice count.
It’s important to us as many people as possible tell us their
views on our proposals and how they may affect them before we
make our final decision.”
A final decision on Somerset’s library service is expected later
this year.
