Our proposal for the library service and multi service centres

Collection of library books

Between 29 September and 21 December 2015, East Riding of Yorkshire Council undertook a consultation exercise on the future of our library service. We have carefully analysed the 7,780 responses that we received and this document details our approach to the review of libraries that we have been undertaking and outlines our proposal for the future of the library service and multi service centres. It sets out the key factors we have considered in developing our proposal which fully takes into account what you told us during the previous consultation.
