Over the coming weeks, all feedback will and reviewed and analysed to find common themes arising across the community (it is important to note that specific individual requests may not necessarily appear in the final recommendations). This feedback will be taken into consideration alongside the criteria set at the commencement of the project, namely: that the final proposal must be budget-neutral (meaning no increase in operational costs), address equity and access to library services, and standardise (wherever possible) opening and closing hours across the library network.
We will then report back to the community on what we heard and following a final opening hours proposal being adopted, we will share any changes that are made as a result of community feedback, as well as address any common themes or requests that were unable to be implemented.
