Feedback meeting after Catshill Library consultation
8:30am Friday 28th September 2012 in News
VILLAGERS who took part in a consultation on the future of Catshill Library are being invited to a feedback event.
Catshill Library, described by Worcestershire County Council as the most under-used in the county, has just more than 1,000 members, compared with the county average of 9,500 per branch.
The council is keen to help facilitate a service which could be run by local volunteers from nearby Catshill Middle School, in Meadow Road.
A 12-week consultation period ended earlier this month, where residents were invited to share their thoughts and to see how many would be interested in being part of the service.
More than 130 responses were received and officers from County Hall have been assessing the feedback, which will be shared with Catshill residents at a meeting being held this Wednesday, October 3.
Councillor John Campion, Worcestershire County Council's Cabinet Member responsible for libraries, said: "One of the frustrations people have with consultations is that they never get any feedback.
“We are grateful to all those who took part and it is really important we share that feedback and bring people up to speed with the next steps."
The meeting will take place at Catshill Middle School, in Meadow Road, from 7pm.
