Sheffield Libraries – Consultation outcomes

Thanks to Alan Kewley for our latest update on Sheffield City Council’s published proposals for the future of Sheffield Libraries which are now available on its website www.sheffield.gov.uk/libraries/library-review.html

In a nutshell, it plans to retain 11 branch libraries as ‘hubs’, and reduce or remove funding from the rest.  Up to 5 libraries could be supported as community-led joint ventures, but the remainder, including Totley and Greenhill, face closure unless an independent group is willing to run them.  A public consultation on these proposals takes place over the next few months.
