Framework For The Future
Launched on 10 February 2003, Framework for the Future is the Government's first ever national public library strategy, setting out a long-term strategic vision for the public library service in England.
The product of extensive consultation within the public library community and with key library stakeholders, Framework for the Future aims to give the public library service network a shared sense of purpose, concentrating on libraries' roles in developing reading and learning, digital skills and services, community cohesion and civic values.
The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) has developed a 3 year Action Plan aimed at taking forward the vision set out in Framework for the Future. The Action Plan outlines a range of projects and developments based upon the main themes identified in the original document.
Further information on the progress and implementation of Framework for the Future can be found on the MLA website or by clicking on the link above.
