The consultation will run until 5pm 9th July 2022.

Kildare County Council is encouraging the public to have their say on the future of libraries in Kildare.

 The main objective of this consultation is to seek the views of the public and understand attitudes towards the library service.

The consultation will run until 5pm 9th July 2022.

The survey can be found at Libraries Ireland and hard copies are available across  Kildare Libraries.

It will also seek feedback on how services can be improved in terms of access, use and visibility of the public library.

The consultation will assist in the development of a new Public Library Strategy which will be published next year.

This strategy will underpin ongoing government and local authority investment in the public library service over the next five years.

The new strategy will be the successor to ‘Our Public Libraries 2022 – Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering Communities’ which has overseen much progress in the public library service in Ireland over the past five years.

The strategy aims to be equally ambitious in continuing to grow the library service. 

Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has launched a public consultation on the development of a new strategy for the public library service.
