Help Dorset Libraries Shape Up to the Future

Whether you use them or not, the Dorset Library Service would like to hear from you about what you would like them to offer in the future. This is their message:


  • On Monday 25th October Dorset Council launched a public consultation to inform how we develop and deliver our library service in the future, the campaign is called #LetsTalkLibraries consultation – Dorset Council. This initial consultation period will be a conversation with our communities to better understand what they need from the service, now and in the future. We are particularly keen to explore what might encourage a non-library user to use our services in the future. This information will help us to update our Library Strategy, which is currently 11 years old.
  • We want to hear from library users and non-users of all ages, to find out what they like, what they don’t like and what would encourage them to use the library service in future. This is an exciting time, and we encourage everyone to have their say!

To allow us to capture views from a wider range of stakeholders. We have designed 2 public surveys.

    1. Children’s survey for 5-15 year olds
    2. Public survey (for 16+yrs). This survey is split into a library user and non user.
