Essex cutting back library hours?

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.

  1. Gloucestershire county council are trumpeting a ‘new package’ and ‘additional money’ for their savagely cut library services – announced as a done deal BEFORE county cabinet debate and BEFORE the final 4 so-called Drop In Consultations and BEFORE the online survey closes 11 Feb. Then they smirk that they’ve ‘listened to people’s comments’. Really?!!!!??!
