Ciara Eastell, SCL President, said: SCL welcomes the publication of Libraries Deliver, which confirms the valuable and important role that libraries hold in our communities. We encourage all library leaders and the library workforce to participate in the consultation so that the final strategy is a vital resource, guiding the medium and long term direction of library services across the country. As a member of the Taskforce, we look forward to working with partners, libraries and library customers to further promote and develop the Universal Offers for Public Libraries, which underpin much of Libraries Deliver, and to deliver a robust and achievable action plan for the future of libraries.
