Residents to have their say on future of Hagley Library
5:00pm Tuesday 11th February 2014 in News
HAGLEY Library users can have their say about the future running of the service at a meeting next month.
The library is at risk of closure as Worcestershire County Council reviews its library services in a bid to save £2.4m by April.
The Worcester Road library could be replaced by a mobile library service unless support can be found to bridge the services budget deficit.
Other options include transferring the running of the library to Hagley Parish Council.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday March 12 at Saviours Church Hall, Worcester Road, from 7.30pm.
Residents will get the opportunity to voice their concerns after officers from the county council reveal the purpose of the library services review and parish councillors and stakeholders have their say.
Chairman of Hagley Parish Council, councillor Steve Colella, said: "We will give residents a chance to raise their concerns and fears and tell us what they want their service to look like in the future. There will be a major part of the meeting set aside for feedback from the community so we know exactly what they want."
Cllr Colella said following the meeting, a working party would be set up to look at the options.
