Inspiring Libraries strategy – future of the library service

In August 2019, Hertfordshire County Council awarded Libraries for Life the contract for the provision of library services in the county. Libraries for Life, a new charitable independent organisation created by the council, will deliver library services in Hertfordshire from April 2020.

Inspiring Libraries is the strategy for the future of libraries in Hertfordshire.

We will develop libraries as:

Vibrant community assets

The digital library

  • Creatorspace, available in Watford Central, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans - a space to create and learn using new technology
  • Coding clubs
  • Open+ self service to the library in Croxley Green and Berkhamsted

Improved access to reading, information and wellbeing
