Monmouthshire’s libraries are to survey the county’s young people to discover what they need from the service.

 The Young People’s Library Survey is held every three years and will run for two weeks from Monday 17th October.  It is aimed at children undertaking key stages 2, 3 and 4 of the national curriculum.

 Children visiting their local library will be asked to fill in a quick, easy and confidential survey so library planners may discover how and why they use the service and how they regard it.  The results will help shape developments and offer guidance for the future.

 Councillor Bob Greenland, cabinet member with responsibility for library services said: “The opinions of Monmouthshire’s young people are very important to us and I urge them to take this opportunity to make their feelings known.  This will allow us to bear them in mind when we consider how the service is run and may be improved.”

 Monmouthshire’s library service is delivered through community hubs in Abergavenny, Caldicot, Chepstow, Monmouth and Usk, as well as at Gilwern Library.  For further information on the Young People’s Library Survey, contact Fiona Ashley – FionaAshley@monmouthshire.gov.uk – or 01633 644906.
