Learning from the Future Libraries Programme: Phase one, 5 August 2011
This report from the LG Group and the Museum, Libraries and Archives (MLA) and presents the findings of the work undertaken with 36 councils to look at how libraries can adapt to meet the challenges of the future.
The Future Libraries Programme is a partnership between the Local Government Group (LG Group) and Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). It is driven by local authorities themselves and is about sharing good practice.
Library sector professionals are increasingly looking to each other and beyond their own service to share and capture knowledge. This can help develop imaginative solutions that save money and improve outcomes for communities. Crucially, it is about harnessing local political leadership and professional expertise and getting them moving in the same direction.
