Have your say: Derbyshire and Derby School Library Service Consultation
Derbyshire and Derby School Library Service Consultation
The School Library Service (SLS) is a traded service which provides support and resources to schools and educational establishments across the city and Derbyshire and is provided jointly by Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council.
The SLS offers a range of educational resources on loan to schools. The main resources are artefacts, but the service also provides books, paintings, prints, posters, DVDs, CDs, textiles and resource packs.
The service is currently facing several challenges with a decline in usage, reductions in income and changes to the way in which it is funded. As a result of this the decision has been made to hold a six-week consultation from 1 January – 11 February 2018 on a proposal to potentially close the SLS.
Schools, nurseries and other educational establishments and providers which use, have used or could use the service are being asked for their views. If you would like the opportunity to have your say please follow the link below to the online questionnaire.
The RM Integris Training & Support Team bring you their latest newsletter, ' the Snippet'. If you use one of the links within the document that accesses the S4S site, you will need to be logged in.
