Public libraries are a valued and trusted resource at the heart of communities. They foster learning and social, cultural and economic wellbeing. But libraries cannot stand still in a changing world and many are exploring different ways of working – re-imagining the range of functions they can fulfil.
The Trust works to support the future of public libraries. We are have developed an innovative advocacy resource showcasing libraries’ contribution to wellbeing, are supporting enhanced library leadership and innovation and played a leading role in the development of a National Strategy for Public Libraries in Scotland.
