The 2022-2026 Draft Library Plan and Consultation

Consultation ending 1pm on 21 January 2022

The words 'Everyone’s library service 2022-2026 draft plan' on a purple background, with three people sitting on outsize books and reading books or electronic readers, a fourth person standing alongside.

Essex County Council have issued a draft Library Service Plan as follows:
“The draft Everyone’s Library Service 2022-2026 plan details how we intend to transform the Library service over the next four years into a modern, vibrant and sustainable service for all.

Helping children and adults improve their literacy, encouraging people to enjoy reading for pleasure and increasing the range of online resources available are just some of the commitments made in the plan. It also commits to keeping all 74 libraries open.

{Essex} Residents are urged to have their say on the draft plan by completing the online survey between 1pm on 26 November 2021 and 1pm on 21 January 2022.”

Overview from the ECC Survey site: “The world has changed significantly in the last few years, particularly during the pandemic. With a new administration and new plan for Essex in place, ECC is evolving its vision for Essex Libraries to provide a service that is modern, vibrant, and sustainable; one which our residents can be proud of.

We want people to get involved and have their say about our draft Library Plan and the things we will be working on over the next four years.

We’ve set out our ideas for the next four years and details of how these will be achieved. These centre around three key aims:

a) Library Service and Literacy
b) Infrastructure & Communications
c) Supporting our Communities and Levelling Up

You have until 21 January 2022 to reply to this online survey.”
