Suffolk Residents invited to help shape the future of library services

Suffolk County Council has launched a public consultation encouraging Suffolk Residents to tell Suffolk County Council what they want from their library services in the future.

Suffolk County Council’s contract with Suffolk’s Libraries Industrial and Provident Society (IPS) Limited, the independent charity that runs the library service, comes to an end on 31 May 2025, with a new contract set to begin in June 2025. The Council is therefore seeking views from the public about what is important to them, ahead of awarding the new contract.

The 13-week consultation, will be followed by a competitive Tender Process, before the new contract is awarded in November 2024.

The council is keen to hear from people who currently use library services and those who do not, to better understand the needs across the county. This feedback will help to inform the requirements for the future contract.

The consultation is open until Friday 26 January 2024.
