·         commitments relating to libraries, and how sustainable any progress is in the current climate;

·         Extent to which the current legislative and policy frameworks are suitable to meet the challenges facing local authorities delivering library services in Wales;

·         How well-prepared the Welsh Government and local authorities are to mitigate the impact of public sector cuts on library services;

·         Options for improving the financial sustainability of library services, including alternative models of provision;

·         The contemporary and community role of public libraries in Wales.
