Brighton & Hove City Council will be getting less funding from central government over the next few years, and have to consider how to make savings while still providing statutory services like Libraries.
The council has carried out a detailed review of library services and there are a number of key proposals based on the findings that include:
♦ Providing access to libraries for seven days a week across the city with a mix of staffed and unstaffed days
♦ Reducing the size of Westdene Library to provide extra classroom space for the school
♦ Moving Hollingbury Library to combine with the Hollingbury and Patcham Children’s Centre
♦ Moving Hove Library to Hove Museum site to create a new Community Cultural Centre for Hove
♦ Increase the use of volunteers
