Welcome to SOLE’s alternative consultation - the questions Essex County Council didn’t bother to ask!

Question Title

* 1. Do you support or oppose Essex County Council’s plans to close up to 44 of the 74 public libraries in Essex, and cut back the service in the remaining ones?

Question Title

* 2. Do you believe that our public libraries should be staffed by paid, trained, professional library staff, or reliant on being able to find volunteers in order to stay open?

Question Title

* 3. Do you believe that our public libraries should be publicly funded by central government and local councils, or reliant on generating their own income to guarantee that they can cover the costs of staying open?

Question Title

* 4. Do you believe that our public libraries should have their own dedicated buildings, or be moved into shared buildings which already provide other services?

Question Title

* 5. Do you believe that we should invest in our libraries to improve and enhance the service they provide and make them more attractive to potential users?

Question Title

* 6. Of the following options, what would make you more likely to use your local library? (Select all that apply)

Question Title

* 7. Do you use a library card every time you go to the library?

Question Title

* 8. Given the choice, would you prefer to retain our current local library services as they are or move to Essex County Council’s plans for a reduced, centralised service?

Question Title

* 9. Please give any other comments you have on the planned cuts to our public libraries and the future of our library services.

Question Title

* 10. Our campaign to save our libraries depends on mobilising as much public opposition as possible. It will help us to do that if we can keep you updated with future events and actions we plan to help save our libraries (such as demonstrations and letter writing campaigns, etc.) 

If you are happy for us to do so please enter your email address below. SOLE won’t share your email with any third parties or use it for anything unrelated to the SOLE campaign.
