Policy Statement: Libraries, Arts & Museums

You said:

Our libraries and museums are important and we don’t want them to close.

We believe that our libraries and museums exist to educate, inform and serve. Our libraries also provide neutral community spaces for professional assistance, internet access, help in job-hunting, and the ability to boost literacy and life-long prospects for all.

We will push to maintain existing library opening hours. We will work to ensure that the proper funding is in place for our libraries, museums, arts and other community facilities. And to further help maintain their funding and relevance, we will seek to maximise the tourist value of our museums, arts and other heritage assets.
