Footfall Figures Concerning Shepley Village Library

Outside of Shepley Library taken from Marsh Lane, Shepley

Next Monday's Special Village Meeting on the village library will provide attendees with a stark reality check on the number of people currently using library and information services, as well as the library building itself.

The official footfall figures are truly depressing, and are a lot less than the 24,000 person footfall we'd been working on. This makes any plans to secure the future of Shepley Library for community use even more challenging.

I've set out details of 2013/2014 figures below and consolidated the information into a spreadsheet for you to download.
