Just like the NHS, libraries in Britain have a vital and unique place in British society. Besides providing free access to books and music, they provide access to the information we need to pursue our careers, improve our health, sort out our money.
Libraries signpost us to opportunities to improve our health, enjoy our leisure and enhance our education. They provide a free sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life and generally help us navigate through life. Their role has changed so much, and if anything, the pace of change is speeding up not slowing down as libraries help us engage with the ever more complex demands of a digital world.
The Future Labs, running first in Lowestoft and Ipswich and then in other settings around the country, will involve Suffolk people in helping to explore how libraries can better support their lives and what libraries can do in the future to enrich their lives.
The group in Ipswich will include people aged 15 to 21 years old and in Lowestoft people aged 18+ who have had tough times in their lives.
