Slough Library Services Public Consultation Assembly

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Principal Libraries Outreach Officer, Alison Beer, for the attention of primary and secondary schools.

Slough Libraries are running a public consultation asking for residents’ and stakeholders views on several proposed options which will make changes to the library service. We would like to know

  • How people use the library service now
  • What their views are on the proposed changes
  • What impacts the changes might have on how people use the service

Full details can be found here.

The consultation closes on 20th January.

We are keen to engage children and young people with the consultation. Their views are very valuable to us and their responses will help us shape our service for the future.

We would like to invite your school to take part in an online assembly. Library staff will present information about the consultation and ask for student’s views and responses. Children do not need to be library members to attend, as we would also like to know why families do not use the service currently.

The information will be adapted to suit the age range of the students. The assemblies will take place via Zoom and are bookable on Eventbrite using the links below.

If the dates and platform are not convenient, we can also deliver an event just for your school.

Please email to request an alternative option. We can deliver in person events at your school, or via another online platform. We can also hold focus groups for students, staff, families or governors.

We will be producing toolkits to provide supporting information about the consultation and help collate children’s responses.
