Mobile Library Closure - A message from Oxfordshire County Council:-
am writing to confirm that, regretfully, the mobile library service in
Oxfordshire will cease to operate in September.
difficult decision was taken in February following extensive public
consultation on proposals to make huge financial savings across all county
council services. As a result of reductions in the money the council
receives from central Government and rising demand for essential services
such as social care for vulnerable adults and children, we are currently
in the process of having to save £361million between 2010 and 2018.
know how greatly the mobile library is valued by its users, and are
encouraging people to continue borrowing books from the service
until the last round of visits begins on Monday 5th September.
The final day of the service will be Friday 16th September.
users will be offered alternative library provision through our network of
43 library buildings; our online library services; and our Home Library
Service. Oxfordshire Library Service already has a successful Home
Library Service that works through paid staff, partners and volunteers to
deliver books and resources to those residents who are unable to get to a
library themselves, and this is being expanded to accommodate any
have already been notified and our general service users will be informed
formally of the changes and alternative provision by letter on June 6th.
I would like to thank you
for the support you have given to the mobile library service and I do hope
that we will be able to work with our service users to find suitable ways
for them to continue accessing library services in the future. "
