Ulverston Town Council library survey – have your say on the future of the library
Ulverston Town Council have launched a survey for the community to share their thoughts on the closed Kings Road Library and the current library service in The Coro.
Ulverston King’s Road Library closed on 1st September 2023 due to ‘electrical issues’. A temporary library service was set up in the Market Hall and The Coro Ante Room. It is now based solely in the Supper Room of The Coro.
We would like to encourage as many people as possible to fill out the survey as we recognise that the views of the community are extremely important and will help to shape the future of the Library and services.
The Community Library Survey takes around two minutes to fill in and can be accessed on the following link – http://tinyurl.com/ULVLCS
Paper copies of the survey will also be available from Ulverston Town Council Office on County Square, where completed surveys can be posted in the letterbox outside the office.
