Freedom of information response

Public Libraries

Publication date: 
Friday 10 May 2024

Specifically, under the FOI legislation, I request a list of all public libraries run by your council between 2005 and 2022. Additionally, could you please provide information on dates of opening and closure (with at least year-month precision) if they started or ceased operation over that period. Lastly, could you please provide information on opening and closing hours of the library in that given year?

That means the final dataset would have the following columns:

Name of the library, address, date of opening, date of closing, opening hours in year 2005, opening hours in year 2006, … , opening hours in year 2022.

If collecting daily opening hours is not possible, annual opening hours are sufficient, too.


Please see attached. Please also note that some partial data is not available in relation to the years 2005-2009.
