Cheshire East Proposals
Following up on a chatbox item sent in by "Ollie", here are some more details of the proposed changes.
These are taken from the Cheshire East website — to access the site direct, click on the link below the picture.
The main proposal is
"To help meet required savings, it is proposed that mobile library stops are removed from locations that are within 2 miles of a static library. For all remaining stops, we propose to reduce the frequency of visits from fortnightly to three weekly and select a central location for the stop in each village. The mobile library would visit each stop on a regular day and time, once every three weeks in line with the three week loan period operating in Cheshire East static libraries.
"In order for the new schedules to work most efficiently the current day, time and location of stops in any village may need to change.
"The proposal would reduce the fleet of operational vehicles from three to one.
"We would aim to offer the Books on Wheels service that currently supports individuals who cannot get into a library to those residents who can no longer physically access library services.
#Have your say
"From Wednesday 2nd May until Wednesday 23rd May 2012 we are consulting on the proposed changes to our Mobile Library Service.
"To have your say you can download a copy of the mobile library questionnaire (PDF ,264KB) or pick up a copy at your library and return it to any static or mobile Cheshire East Library. Alternatively, you can complete the questionnaire online.
"All responses must be received no later than Wednesday 23rd May 2012.
