Broomhill library and Crosspool mobile library service to be axed

Sheffield City Council has announced that Broomhill library could close within two years unless a community group comes forward to run it.

Crosspool mobile library will be axed

The mobile library service that visits Crosspool is also due to be scrapped.

Under the plans, just 12 of Sheffield’s 28 libraries will be saved, five will become community-led and 11 – including Broomhill and Walkley – will become ‘independent libaries’.

The council is seeking your views on the proposals.

Mobile library service to be cut in Crosspool

Crosspool mobile library: the service is to be cut

In a bid to save £1.4 million from the budget, Sheffield City Council is to drastically cut back its mobile library service.

Currently the mobile library makes weekly visits in Crosspool to Benty Lane and Watt Lane (twice), plus monthly visits to Moorbank Road Flats and Tapton Hill Road.

Under the new proposals, the Crosspool service will be reduced to a single weekly visit to Watt Lane and a monthly visit to Moorbank Road Flats.

You can have your say on the cuts as part of a consultation exercise.
