A PUBLIC consultation into the proposed relocation of a library in an Easter Ross town is under way.

It is proposed to move the public library in Tain from the existing Stafford Street site to the new 3-18 school campus at Craighill, creating a new community library.

An online consultation on the proposal started this week and runs until Monday of next week.

Anyone who wishes to see documents in period or who would like to speak to the senior network librarian for the north area about the proposal can do so at Tain Public Library.

Covid-19 safety measures will be in place, including the wearing of face coverings inside the library, unless exempt.

Members of the public are being advised that any responses and comments must be made on the official feedback form and returned by close of business on June 14. Comments made via other mediums, such as Facebook, “will not be taken into consideration”.

Further details of what is proposed and an opportunity to feedback comments can be found at https://www.highlifehighland.com/libraries/tain-library/

This includes a list of benefits, examples of similar projects, and a chance to have your say.

The consultation is being run through High Life Highland.
