New support programme for libraries

Ed Vaizey, the Culture Minister, today moved to secure a place for libraries at the heart of the Big Society.

An expert support programme will be led by the Museums Libraries and Archive Council and the Local Government Association Group. They will work together to support councils as they adapt to the current economic challenge, helping them deliver key services while reducing costs.

Initially, the programme will work intensively with around 10 library authorities. When this first phase of work is complete, the lessons learned will be shared with the wider public library network. The programme is based on the principle that local services know their communities best and that the solutions should be owned and driven by councils.
