London Library Change Programme

  • By London Councils

The funding for the London Cultural Improvement Programme came to an end in 2011.  This website will remain live to ensure that the learning and resources from the programme are still available.  For an overview of the programme visit the LCIP Index.

The London Library Change Programme (LLCP) supported London boroughs to find new models of public library service delivery to help deliver budget savings and improved efficiency.  The aim of the programme was to collaborate to reduce the cost of London’s library services and achieve better value-for-money.  The first two phases of work explored individual service efficiencies and the sharing of back-office functions.  Building on these foundations, Capital Ambition supported the final phase (phase three) of the programme to help boroughs implement new models of collaboration and shared services.

In the final phase of the programme, we focused on providing boroughs with tools and support to help accelerate the work of existing partnerships or to help establish new collaborative projects.
