WEST SUSSEX LIBRARY SERVICES – Public Consultation

By October 25, 2019 FrontPageMain

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) would like to make you aware of a public consultation currently running on proposed budget savings within the Library Service.

 

The public consultation closes on Wednesday 13 November. It asks people for their views on proposals to cease the mobile library service and to reduce the evening opening hours in the four main libraries (Chichester, Crawley, Horsham and Worthing) by one hour, from 7pm to 6pm from April 2020.

 

WSCC is keen for as many library users as possible to take part in the consultation and share their thoughts on the proposals.

 

The consultation will help inform the decision, due to be taken in November by the Cabinet Member for Fire and Rescue and Communities. The decision is one of a number of options being worked up to take forward in the 2020/21 budget to help meet the funding gap currently being faced.
