Following a meeting of our council’s cabinet where it was agreed to start the second phase of public consultation on proposed changes to the library service, they are now asking to hear people’s views on the following options developed to make the £500,000 savings target outlined at the meeting:

  • Reduce service hours by 21% across the borough
  • Outsource all libraries
  • Hybrid – reduction in service hours (two days per week) to eight libraries and five community run libraries

You can find more details about these options and the online survey at:

The online survey ends at midnight 26 July 2021. Paper copies must be returned by 21 July 2021.
