Essex County Council are changing their approach to the information drop-ins at libraries about the future library services consultation, based on feedback and experience so far.  Instead of just one two- or four-hour slot, they are offering a week at each library during which people can drop in any time it is open to ask questions and find out what the strategy is about. Once they’ve done so, if they want help to access the survey, library staff can provide it. Please note that the purpose of the drop-ins is to provide information, not to gather feedback.  Everybody is asked to respond to the consultation via the survey, preferably online, as this is the most efficient and accurate way to ensure your views are recorded and heard. They are making the change because feedback so far has shown that people want to be able to drop in at times convenient to them, including weekends and evenings. In some locations lots of people want to find out about the consultation. In smaller libraries, this could pose a serious risk to health and safety if a lot of people arrive at once and mean that some people leave frustrated that their expectations haven’t been met.

Drop in week for Hockley & Hullbridge Libraries commences 28th January 2019. The consultation expires on 20th February 2019.
