A new piece of research, conducted during March-April 2017 amongst members of the Community Library Peer Network, reveals shared interests and goals and the importance of access to the advice and support they need to run their library services effectively.

The survey (which was sent to 202 existing network members and received a 17% response rate) sought their views and ideas on how to make the network self-sustaining, and providing benefits to members, such as networking events and advice and support from peers.
