In 2016 LiveWire, the community interest company (CiC) that runs Warrington’s leisure, library and lifestyle services, consulted on how to modernise the library service. In response, many people stressed how important the service is to them, and the good it does for our communities and cultural life. This strength of feeling led to the set-up of a Libraries Working Group to consider residents’ feedback, review the needs of local people, and liaise with community groups. The group made recommendations to keep all libraries open for the foreseeable future, which was approved by Warrington Borough Council's Executive Board in Dec 2017.
Following the decision from the Executive Board, Warrington Borough Council have established a Libraries Partnership Board to ensure Warrington's library services are dynamic, comprehensive, universal and sustainable for all Warrington residents.
Libraries Partnership Board - meeting arrangements
The Partnership board will meet a minimum of every two months and will publish meeting papers on both Warrington Borough Council and LiveWire's websites.
