To all Councillors, libraries can be self-funding...

Public libraries take revenue from administration fees, fines, overdue fees, reservation fees and replacement charges, but this revenue is not enough to keep libraries open.

However public libraries can make more money by offering online services, which the public want and are prepared to pay for, to bridge the funding gap. For some services, library staff aren't involved and additional workload isn't placed upon existing staff.

If you are interested in keeping libraries open, please read on... or call us to make an appointment for a personal presentation.

Don't close libraries, because once libraries are closed you lose the ability to create revenue streams for the Council, which are needed to support other services.
