Library users in Reading will see a number of cuts driven changes to the way the service is delivered over the coming months.
Following an extensive service review, a public consultation took place in 2015. As a result of that consultation, the Council is keeping all its library branches open, but cutting services drastically.
Residents can expect to see the following changes across all branches from March:
Green Party Councillor for Park ward, Rob White said:
"With this latest wave of cuts to library services, it continues to be apparent how much of a bind the council is in with regards to funding. Government cuts continue to result in hits to vital public services such as libraries. The Green Party will continue to stand up to the government’s austerity agenda and fight for public services."
As Government policies are adversely affecting more and more of us, there has never been a better time to get involved with the work of the Green Party.
