What we are consulting on
We are asking for your views to shape the service provided by our Mobile Library.
The Library Service will be introducing a new modern mobile library later this year.
The new vehicle, which will replace the existing mobile library vehicle, will be fully-electric and therefore much cleaner and greener.
Other sustainable features include solar panels and LED lighting.
There will also be improvements to services offered, such as an awning for summer activities and onboard Wi-Fi and digital access for customers.
Proposals include enhancing some stops by adding activities, such as a Storytime or Craft Session in partnership with community centres or village halls; reviewing existing stops on a six-monthly basis; and withdrawing five stops that are not well used, but adding three additional stops, some near to the stops being removed from current mobile library routes.
Full details of the proposal, existing routes and proposed routes are available here: www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/mobilelibraryconsultation
