Staff at the Brander Library in Huntly want members of the public to find out more about what services they offer and to input into how services could be expanded.

HUNTLY'S Brander Library hosts an informal drop-in session next Saturday.

Local people are urged to go along to input into Live Life Aberdeenshire’s plans for developing libraries - sharing their opinions and ideas about future services.

Live Life Aberdeenshire wants to hear what people think about the current opening hours, the facilities and services provided by the library team and what additional services they would like to see.

It will also be a chance for people to discover more about the wide range of services available including digital support, press reader and e books.

An online survey on future library provision runs until the end of the month and has already attracted more than 5000 responses.

The Huntly session is one of 17 being held across Aberdeenshire which are intended to complement the survey, which seeks the opinions of those who use – or don’t yet use – their local library.

A spokesman said: "Knowledgeable staff will be on hand to talk through planned changes and improvements, with a wealth of information about the ways in which libraries fit into community life at the moment.

"Modern libraries aim to be at the heart of their community - a safe and neutral space to browse, learn and meet people."

The open session is from 10am until 3.30pm on Saturday, February 29.

The online survey closes the same day and can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ABSLIBRARIES
