£10k capital improvement proposals for community library spaces

Closed 28 Feb 2021

Opened 18 Jan 2021


Our Sheffield City Council community hub libraries (as well as volunteer run libraries) have been awarded a one-off cash boost this year of £10,000 each.  This funding will give each library the opportunity to make changes to improve their offer to the local community.

Therefore, we wish to consult on how to spend the funding to ensure the library space can do more for the communities that use them.

Library staff have identified options for improving the library space and we are asking for your views on those options and for any other suggestions you may have.  As each library space is unique, there are different options put forward for each library. 

This survey does not include Central Library, the Home Library Service or Archives.  Although the volunteer run libraries in Sheffield are eligible for a 10k grant to improve their library spaces too, this survey is restricted to Sheffield City Council run libraries.   Please contact the volunteer run library that you use if you want any further information.

Why your views matter

We currently have an opportunity to improve our community-based libraries and therefore by consulting we can ensure this is what our customers want.   

 It will not be possible to undertake all the ideas suggested by staff and customers, so consultation will help prioritise improvements now and into the future.

What happens next

The results of the survey will be used to determine which option or options for spending 10k (per library) will be pursued.
