Our vision for libraries

Our vision is for libraries to maximise their contribution to resilient communities, and Denbighshire County Council’s continuing investment in Library buildings, combined with greater community investment (eg through Town Council financial contributions) is creating firm foundations for this to become a reality. In order to move closer to our vision we must embed new working practices, review our performance reporting, professionalise and reinvigorate the workforce, increase direct involvement of communities (eg through volunteering opportunities), improve the marketing and publicity for libraries, and extend regional working to maximise our resources. By investing the time and effort involved in these activities we will be creating community hubs which will become the beating heart of culturally diverse and resilient communities across the County.
