Peterborough's 'Open+'

Efficiency and income generation

Peterborough's 'Open+' initiative allows all ten of their libraries remain open, and for longer hours than they were before. They have achieved this using technology called Open+ from Bibliotheca which allows Peterborough to keep their libraries open with no staff at particular times. The new model has saved the council £305,000 a year and safeguarded Peterborough's libraries for the future.
