Libraries on the line: Have your say to make sure Redditch's survive

THE consultation into the future use of libraries in Worcestershire has now been launched.

The county’s library service is required to make savings of some £800,000 and no library in the entire county has been considered ‘safe’ against any future cuts.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “We want as many people as possible to take part in the consultation. We want to hear the views of residents on suggested priorities for each library and ideas they may have about which services could be delivered by individual libraries.

“Some of those ideas will help to shape our final proposals.”




The consultation, which can be found on the County Council’s website, and runs until February 2.

A final decision on the future of libraries will be made in spring 2019.


A link to the consultation is available at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/libraries or alternatively, paper copies will be available at all local libraries.
