Ser­vice a model for rest of Wales

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

THE li­brary ser­vice in Car­marthen­shire is a model for the rest of Wales, ac­cord­ing to a Welsh Gov­ern­ment re­port.

The coun­cil has been praised for its com­mit­ment to the fu­ture of its li­brary ser­vice and for its for­ward-think­ing ap­proach in cre­at­ing a new dig­i­tal learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment along­side its more tra­di­tional of­fer­ing.

Car­marthen­shire is the best in Wales for both its in­vest­ment in read­ing ma­te­ri­als and spend­ing per head on li­brary pro­vi­sion, as well as the third high­est in Wales for PC pro­vi­sion.

Ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber for cul­ture, coun­cil­lor Peter Hughes-Grif­fiths, told the ex­ec­u­tive board: “The re­port praises the com­mit­ment of the coun­cil to the ser­vice it­self, it praises our strat­egy which sets out a ro­bust frame­work for the fu­ture and also the va­ri­ety of what we pro­vide within the ser­vice across the county.”
