Libraries have long been at the heart of communities. But communities, lifestyles and expectations are changing so libraries need to change too. We are inviting people to get involved to rethink libraries’ place in communities and make them fit for the future, relevant and sustainable. We think libraries have great potential as hubs for local people, services and activities, and we want to work with our communities and partners to make it happen. We want your ideas, your enthusiasm, your local knowledge and your creative thinking about how to provide what your community needs.
The events are open to the public, including library
Monday 26th March 2018 at Clacton ACL, St Osyth Road, Clacton, CO15 3BN
The event is open to the public, including library users and non-users, and to community groups, community leaders and partner organisations.
Please register now at libraries.essex.gov.uk to secure your place(s) at the event.

a short film illustrating the themes to be discussed
a 20-30 minute discussion led by myself or my deputy, Cllr Mark Durham
