Public consultation - changes to library opening hours

Published: 6th December 2011 18:29
Public consultation - changes to library opening hours

Hampshire's Library Service is holding a public consultation into changes to library opening hours as part of the next phase of its restructure and we would like you to help shape future decisions. Anyone wishing to comment about these proposed changes should do so before the consultation ends on Wednesday 28 December. You can do this online or at your local library.

The Library Service has to make savings of £450,000 in response to budget cuts in 2012/13 and beyond. To help us achieve this we are proposing to reduce the total number of library opening hours by 145.5 hours a week, a reduction of 7.5%. This proposal is in addition to other measures already undertaken to streamline the service, such as reducing staff at Library Headquarters and the number of managers across the Service and reviewing the Mobile Library Service.

We are aiming to construct a Library Service for the future, with an affordable network of libraries that can adapt to the needs of their local communities. In developing our proposals we have made every effort possible to minimise the impact on residents whilst achieving our budget targets.

Full details of our proposals are set out at www.hants.gov.uk/library
