We are holding a series of workshops to start an informal discussion with you on the future of libraries in Cambridgeshire. As a key stakeholder, you are invited to join us to explore the challenges and opportunities for the County Council’s service and help shape the future of the service.
We want to explore ideas for new models that meet the needs of our communities and are financially sustainable, and need your ideas and suggestions to inform this work and say how libraries can continue to thrive. The Government has recently published ‘Libraries Deliver: Ambition for Public Libraries in England 2016 to 2021’ which we are using as a framework to refresh our own strategy over the coming months.
Workshops will be held on:
- Monday 21st August 18:30 – 21:00
Huntingdon Library, Princes Street, Huntingdon PE29 3PA
- Tuesday 22nd August 18:30 – 21:00
Cambourne Sports and Social Club, The Pavilion, Brick Lane CB23 6FY
- Wednesday 23rd August 18:30 – 21:00
March Library, City Rd, March PE15 9LT
- Thursday 24th August 18:30 – 21:00

- Friday 25th August 18:30 – 21:00

Please feel free to pass this invitation to other people who would be interested in attending any of the sessions.
These workshops are not the only opportunity to get involved, and are just the start of a conversation.
