Library services: Crosspool residents asked to give their views

Crosspool mobile library: the service is to be cut
Local library services could be cut further

Sheffield residents are being asked to give their opinion on local library services ahead of the council’s plan to make savings in this area.

Interim Director of Community Services Jan Fitzgerald has indicated that some services could change due to the amount of money that needs to be saved.

She said: “Some of the savings will have to come from our library services. Whilst trying to protect frontline services, we cannot guarantee that they will be untouched given the scale of the savings which will be required.”

You can give your views at www.sheffield.gov.uk/libraryreview or via a paper form which can be picked up at at any library or First Point. The consultation runs until 8 October.

Crosspool is currently served by two mobile library services and the nearest local lending library is in Broomhill.
