Libraries in Reading face Government cuts

The future of library services in Reading is the subject of a public consultation.

Residents and library users are being asked what they think about plans to reduce opening hours in a bid to save money.

The public consultation process runs for 12 weeks and asks residents and library users for feedback on a set of proposals in which all seven local services operating in the borough continue to be delivered, but opening hours are reduced to make savings.

In some cases library services would be delivered differently, or from other buildings.
