Accreditation for libraries

'Every public library is as good as the best'

We have secured a grant of £128,456 from Arts Council England to clearly define what a high-quality library service looks like.

We aim to develop and deliver an authoritative, sector-led scheme to help libraries in England to meet the needs of their local communities.

We will work closely with the Arts Council and CILIP to develop the new framework. Shared Intelligence will deliver the consultation and co-creation for this project to ensure that we develop a practical scheme that supports service development and allows libraries to advocate for their services.

We are pleased to also be working with The British Library and The National Archives on this project.
