Library Usage

Below is a visual representation of the impact of library usage in South Gloucestershire – a picture tells a thousand words. This map and other should be read as follows:

  • red pins represent libraries that are “safe” under all presented options of the library consultation
  • yellow pins represent libraries that are being considered for closure or cutbacks in hours
  • each concentric circle around a library represents an area covering 10% of the borrowing activity for each library; the circles are in blue represent 50% of the activity, red circles show the other 50%
  • library specific maps: green spots show each postcode that uses that particular library, they are only an approximation of the actual surface area covered
