|Key findings||Four out of ten panel members are regular library users and a quarter are occasional users. Most people visit a library to borrow a book or use the reference section. Those who do not visit a library say they have no need, or that they are too busy.
Most panel members feel good about living in Lancashire, think Lancashire has an image of its own and think it is important for Lancashire to have a strong identity.
Within the County Council budget there is majority support for developing services for older people, waste disposal, children with special needs, children and families, primary schools and public transport. There is less support for highways and street lighting, regenerating the County, mental health services, people with a learning disability, or pupils experiencing disadvantage. There is least support for developing libraries.
