Bromsgrove Libraries - Proposed Cuts - Have your say!

The Quarterly Arts Alive meeting on Wednesday 23rd February was held in Bromsgrove Library which, along with Catshill and Rubery Libraries, is being included in Worcestershire County Council (WCC) proposals to make savings of £800,000. This is on top of £200,000 worth of savings already made in this current round of cuts and £3.7 million pounds worth of cuts to the service over the last 10 years.

The proposals are.....

  • Bromsgrove Library to become an Open Library .......basically this means that access to the library and its services, at certain times, will be by chip and pin card. At these times, the library will be unstaffed.
  • Catshill and Rubery Libraries to become Community Managed Libraries.....Library services will be delivered by community volunteers and Library buildings will be funded and managed by communities.

It was obvious that those members present at the meeting were not in favour of the proposals and, accordingly, we have been asked to write to WCC to express the meetings feelings.

We wouldn't presume to put our personal feelings forward as those of BAA and we would ask you to let us know, via the Contact page, over the next few days, what your feelings are on the issue. To assist,  a copy of WCC's Consultation Document.....a short(ish) description of the proposals....can be found at http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/librariesconsultation

In addition, if you haven't  done so already, WE would also urge you to complete the survey which you can find at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/libraries

Please share this message so that as many Bromsgrove residents as possible can have their say.

The consultation process ends on 28th February 2019

 

Dates announced for forthcoming AA Meetings......

The following dates have been set for the Quarterly Meetings of Bromsgrove Arts Alive!

You are reminded that ALL Arts Alive members are welcome to attend....not just representatives.
