CUSTOMERS of Worcestershire County Council's mobile library are being asked to comment on the proposals for change to the vehicles' routes and stopping off points.

The consultation agreed at the council's cabinet meeting on July 17 will run for 12 weeks until October 31.

Customers using the mobile library service can feedback their views by completing an online questionnaire located at, complete a hard copy of the questionnaire which is available from the mobile library or from any library, and they can also take the opportunity to talk to senior staff from the libraries and learning services team on the mobile when it tours the county at the end of September.

All of the responses received during the consultation period will be taken into account before any changes are made to the mobile library service.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, the county council's cabinet member for localism and communities, said: "In order to continue to meet the financial challenges we need to look at changes to the mobile library service.

"Before any decisions are made it is important that we hear what our customers have to say.

"Though this consultation everyone has the opportunity to tell us what they think and we will be able to ensure that all customers can continue to access library services and receive a service that is appropriate to them."

During the mobile library consultation period all customers currently using the Library Service At Home will also be contacted directly by staff to discuss future planned changes to their service too.
