Library Consultation in Bristol
I quite like the format of Bristol's consultation on its libraries strategy. It seems much more imaginative than many municipal consultations. However, it will not allow Bristol to simply sidestep that key problems of how to make its shrinking budget meet its library needs. However skilfully designed, hard questions about sensible priorities, the most effective ways of working and so on have to be answered, and ultimately someone has to make a decision and be accountable for it.
