Welcome to our survey on what we should do with the Oundle Library.

This survey is a trial to see whether this method of communicating with the residents of Oundle is an effective one or not. Therefore we hope that you will be happy to complete it and it is a very short survey. Its purpose is to help steer the council into considering its options for the future of Oundle Town Library, based on the recent announcement from Northants County Council on the impact proposed budget cuts for 2018-19 will have on the future of libraries in the County.
