Children will be asked to complete a questionnaire about what they think of the service.

Schools library service senior officer Colin Sawers said: “We want to know specifically what the children like best about us and how they feel we can improve to make our service even better.

“If children are unable to complete a questionnaire themselves, their parents or staff can help them. It’s really all about us learning from our customers and growing with them.

“It is hoped that we will find out how children currently use the service, how satisfied they are with the library overall and what can be done to make their visit more rewarding.”

n A fact-finding day is being held in Kimberworth Park community library to help residents discover what was on land before their homes were built.

Rotherham’s Archives and Local Studies Service is helping people delve into the past of their homes to discover the history of the land using Ordnance Survey maps from 1888 onwards.

“It is a great opportunity for us to show residents what their local area used to look like,” said local studies librarian David Blunden. The event is on Tuesday October 2 between 10am and 12.30pm.
