Future of Pembrokeshire's mobile libraries uncertain

11:24am Wednesday 27th November 2013

The future of Pembrokeshire's three mobile libraries is to be reviewed.

The county Cabinet, which meets on Monday, will discuss the future of the service which is projected to cost £101,000 next year.

A report to cabinet members said that the fleet "is old and prone to regular breakdown".

It adds that the service has a small number of regular users - defined as those who have used the service at least four times in a 12 month period- working out at around 1% of the Pembrokeshire population.

Analysis of those users suggests that the vast majority are in communities with high levels of car ownership.

Council officers recommended a review of the mobile library service and that a report setting out recommendations be brought back before Cabinet members.
