The Society of Chief Librarians is delighted to introduce the Universal Culture Offer
The Universal Culture Offer will complement the other five offers; the Six Steps Promise and the Children’s Promise. There are two elements to this offer- the Core Offer that most services will deliver and the Stretch Offer that some library services are beginning to shape. In conducting the consultation for this offer , the range of cultural activities provided by libraries was impressive.
As SCL becomes an Arts Council England Sector Support Organisation, being able to articulate libraries’ unique role within local and national cultural provision and demonstrating how libraries create new opportunities for communities to engage with and enjoy art and culture will be crucial to its success. The Culture Offer will be formally launched in the autumn.
Here are the Universal Culture Offer documents
The Universal Culture Offer was officially launched at Hull Central Library on 26th October 2017 and the launch press release, films and brochure can be found here.
