Draft Library Strategy 2019-2022

This consultation is now closed. Results will be made available shortly.

Warrington’s Public Library Service is run by Livewire on behalf of Warrington Borough Council and is a highly-valued community service. Livewire’s wide range of library services are delivered to anyone who lives, works, studies or visits Warrington. 

Libraries and cultural services are an integral part of community life across Warrington and sit at the heart of lifelong learning. We know that to sustain our libraries and cultural services into the future, with the resources that we have, we need to think differently and creatively about how those services are provided. The communities and customers that Livewire serves are changing and will continue to change over time. There are new challenges to face and opportunities to explore. The draft strategy sets out how Warrington will continue to provide a sustainable libraries service to meet the needs and choices of our communities.
