Libraries Transformation Programme

1. Aims

The Libraries Transformation Programme aims to respond to the Council’s significant budget pressures, whilst delivering a modern and sustainable library service that meets the needs of the people of East Sussex.

There are two stages to the programme. The first is an Internal Review of the current service, which we have now completed. The second part is a draft Strategic Commissioning Strategy called East Sussex Libraries – The Way Forward. It sets out proposals for the future library service in East Sussex.

If the proposed Strategy is implemented, overall the Libraries Transformation Programme will have achieved over £1.9 million toward a total savings target of £2 million. The proposals set out in the draft Strategy are considered to be the most appropriate way to prioritise resources in order to meet identified needs at this time.
