Annual film and music membership schemes
CD and DVD collections will remain available in the libraries that hold them beyond 2017 but as of April 2016 the annual membership schemes are no longer available. Existing film and music memberships will be honoured until their expiry date.
The public consultation in 2015/16 supported a phased withdrawal of poorly used library collections in outdated formats including CDs, DVDs and games. We will stop purchasing CDs and DVD from April 2017.
