Sheffield City Council have assured library campaigners that they would keep as many libraries open as possible but said that they may have to be "run differently".
Up to 14 of the city's 27 libraries are under threat due to budget cuts but the Council say that no decision has been made.
The Labour-run-council have conceded that they may have to find other organisations to take over the running of some services for them to stay open.
We have learned from other places and we are very keen to work with groups on viable plans to run local libraries.. We have also listened extensively to what people have already told us and we plan to keep as many libraries open across the city as possible – just as we were asked us to do – even if this means libraries being run differently.
