As many of our readers live closer to the Camden Library on the Euston Road then any of the Islington Libraries, I thought it worthwile to pass this survey on. By clicking the appropriate links you can fill out the short servey. Personally, I found the questions on the survey to be good – and targeted – so as to be really helpful, if the outcome of the consultation is representative of the responses.
I am writing to tell you about the Camden libraries consultation which is currently taking place.
Due to reductions in central government funding, Camden Council needs to reduce its spending by £80 – £100 million over the next three years.
For libraries and a range of other services such as children’s centres, housing repairs and support to older people, this means a reduction in the services that we can provide.
We want to hear your views about the library service to help us decide how to best provide services with less money.
How to share your views:
• complete the library consultation survey online at:
• collect a printed copy of the consultation survey from any Camden Library and once completed, place it in the survey box, or post it.
• Download and print the survey from:
http://www.app4.emailiq.com/134500/215022111/5149639/15/0/url.aspx and once completed, place it in a survey box at any Camden library, or post it.
Please note that surveys must be received by Monday 4 April 2011.
We will publish information about the results of the survey on the Camden website soon after the end of the consultation. A report will be publicly available in late May 2011 with recommendations for the Council’s June Cabinet meeting. Once the Cabinet has made its decision, we will let you know what it means for library customers as soon as possible.

Can someone tell me if Islington is going through the same type of consultation process?
