The Warwickshire Libraries Consultation - What are the Questions?

Following on from the post of 17 March where I outlined the consultation document, here are the questions that are contained in the questionnaire. You can judge for yourselves if they are trivial, meaningful or essential. If you have ever filled in something like this, you will notice some open, closed or multiple choice questions. I understand this questionnaire to have been written in conjunction with the Consultation Institute.

To complete the form yourself, go to a library, view and print or complete the online version (this is the Warwickshire Library page with a link to Survey Monkey).

  1. That is the most biased and non-consultative consultation I have ever seen. I've just completed it - they are only consulting on if you want to volunteer or give them money.

    Warwickshire should be ashamed of themselves. The amount of doublespeak in the consultation is also astounding - "once in a lifetime opportunity"?

    Wow, how do these people live with themselves?
