Mobile library service

The Mobile Library Service currently visits around 250 communities across Leicestershire and makes circa 400 individual stops. It has been ascertained that 14% of these stops attract no visitors and that 46% of stops there are less than three customers. An indicative cost per unique service user is around £190.

It is therefore proposed to review the Mobile Library Service to explore the options for reducing costs and increasing engagement. The review will focus on streamlining the service to reduce staffing and vehicle costs, but may also include options to decommission aspects of the service. Engagement with users of the service will form part of the review.
