Siren News’ Special Report on county libraries

00:00 /

The Community and Public Safety scrutiny committee have recently voted to approve recommendations to cut library services.

Outside the Lincolnshire County Council offices, protesters gathered to voice their frustration.

The Committee have approved the recommendations that will go forward to executive committee meeting on the 3rd February. The proposals state that communities of 550 households or more not served by a tier 1 library such as Lincoln Central Library or a tier 2 library such as Market Rasen to have access to a community run hub, staffed by volunteers or mobile library shops. So briefly it means a cut in the library service.
