Our vision in Merthyr Tydfil Public Libraries is a shared vision across Wales and incorporates the Libraries Inspire vision:
‘Libraries will inspire the people of Merthyr Tydfil to enjoy reading, enhance their knowledge and skills, to enrich their quality of life and empower them to realise their full potential’.
This vision relates directly to the Merthyr Leisure Trust vision statement:
‘Enhancing lives through leisure and culture’.
This vision will be realised by achieving the core offer of entitlements for both educational and public libraries across Wales:
The Welsh Public Library Standards will underpin the performance measures for the service as we operate in a time of austerity and funding cuts to public services. Having already undergone a series of staffing cuts, service cuts and reductions to budgets the service will strive to continue to provide top quality services to the people of Merthyr Tydfil.
