Libraries Connected believes in the power of libraries to change lives.

Our vision is an inclusive, modern, sustainable and high quality public library service at the heart of every community in the UK. We work to promote the value of libraries, broker national partnerships, share best practice and drive innovation in the sector. 

Made by our members, we represent all the public library services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
