DATA Play

DATA Play is about working with local talent and tech companies to explore how open data and technology can be used to help the Council deliver services in new ways. 

DATA Play 9 is happening on Friday 26 October and as it's all about libraries and city challenges we thought it would be fun to share some random library data. Thanks to Libraries West for the idea.
