Universal Library Offers

The new Universal Library Offers aim to connect communities, improve wellbeing and promote equality through learning, literacy and cultural activity.

The Universal Library Offers also aim to ensure that all aspects of public library provision are accessible and therefore each offer is underpinned by the Six Steps Promise to ensure access for people with visual impairments developed by Share the Vision and The Children’s Promise developed by The Association of Senior Children’s and Education Librarians (ASCEL).

The Universal Offers were launched in 2013 to demonstrate the power of public libraries to enrich the lives of individuals and their communities. Two of the offers (Reading, and Health and Wellbeing) are delivered in partnership with The Reading Agency.

The offers were reviewed with the public library sector and stakeholders in 2019 and relaunched to create a new streamlined and consistent framework. The framework will ensure that the offers remain central to our aim to support the core public library offer and to drive library innovation and development.
