I was in Colchester Library this afternoon picking up some books and noticed a poster there from the County Council about a forthcoming consultation about reducing the opening hours of libraries to make budget savings. No real details on what’s being proposed or consulted on, but the consultation’s apparently not starting until February 14th – no details yet on the Essex Libraries website or the County’s consultation portal, though.

I’m asking around to see if I can get some more information, but for now I thought I’d put it up here to see if anyone out there knows anything about it that they want to share.
