Two Public Consultation Surveys

Overview

Libraries are an essential service for those who live, work and study in Aberdeen. Consultation into how Aberdeen’s library service can best meet the needs of its citizens and communities will take place from July to October 2023. This presents an opportunity for all to reflect, share ideas and shape the future of our library service. How we engage and consult during this process is important. It is vital we capture the voice of library customers as well as capturing input from those who do not currently access the library service or have yet to access services. During the consultation there will be many opportunities for community engagement including those designed for children and young people, more anonymous consultation in libraries and online and invites to join themed focus groups as well as bringing in expertise from across our national library networks.

Aberdeen's Future Library and Information Service Survey:

Be a vital part of shaping our future library provision so that resources can be directed to meet the needs of our ever-changing city and communities. This survey is part of a range of consultation activity from the Aberdeen Library and Information Service, which will inform the direction and delivery of the future of the library service.

Various tools will be used to include written, digital, face to face and alternative formats to ensure participation is inclusive for all.
