Update on the future of Bristol’s library service

An update on the future of Bristol’s library service

Alison Comley, Strategic Director, Neighbourhoods

The second phase of consultation into the future of Bristol’s library service is now underway and it is important that you have your say.

At this point no decisions have been made, and we need to continue our open conversation with the people of Bristol.

Following on from the first stage of the Bristol Future Libraries consultation, initial recommendations have been outlined to modernise the service and provide greater consistency across the city.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved and have your say as part of the consultation process.


  • The new survey and information booklet will be available from www.bristolfuturelibraries.co.uk
  • Online survey (main and Easy Read) and information booklet will also be available from this link.
  • There will be engagement with people on our social media channels.
  • You can also sign up for the e-bulletin – email bristolfuturelibraries@bristol.gov.uk to receive regular updates.

Hard copy material

  • Paper copies of the information booklet and surveys will be available at all libraries.

Face to face engagement

  • There will be drop in sessions during the day at each library during the consultation period.
  • The public will have the opportunity to speak to someone from the service and ask questions.
  • There will also be a dedicated libraries meeting for each Neighbourhood, which will allow communities to have a voice in shaping the future of their local library. These will be held in the evenings.
  • Dates will be advertised on the website, in libraries and other local community buildings and we will also be producing a flyer with the dates on.
