humanities-libraryIf you haven’t heard already, there’s a consultation just got underway on proposed cuts to the opening hours of libraries in Leeds.

All 36 libraries run by Leeds City Council are affected.

Under the proposals, 17% of the total hours will be cut in an effort to make staff savings agreed when the council set its budget in February.

The savings were initially set at £100,000.

Some libraries will be hit harder than others: Gildersome, for example, will lose nearly half (48%) of its opening hours, while Moor Allerton will lose just 3%.

You can have your say here.

consultationHere’s how the consultation works: you aren’t asked whether you agree with the cuts, just how you’d like them to be implemented.

You’re given two options, Option A offering different opening days and times to Option B. Either way you’re losing the same number of opening hours in nearly every instance.
