Scotland’s latest public library strategy has been published.
Forward builds on strong foundations & the collective desire for a vibrant, sustainable future for our public library network.
Delivered by the Scottish Library Information Council (SLIC), this brilliant new public library strategy clearly marks the direction of travel for Scotland’s public libraries.
It is the result of a comprehensive research and consultation process, global in reach yet firmly focused on the needs of individuals and communities in Scotland.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this strategy embraces the collective desire to not simply return to normal but to do things differently, more efficiently, and more sustainably. Informed and shaped by key national policies and priorities, it places libraries at the heart of recovery.
Three key themes underpin the vision for public libraries in Scotland from 2021-2025: people, place and partnership.
