Library cuts consultation
People are being asked when they want their libraries to open under Norfolk County Council proposals to reduce opening hours by 10pc to save money.
The plans have been drawn up following the Norfolk Big Conversation consultation which ran between October 2010 and January 2011 where people could suggest ways the council can plug an estimated funding gap of �155 million over the next three years.
The options for reducing opening hours have been drawn up following a consultation with the libraries' staff and are based on the times when each library is least busy.
The proposals for North Norfolk include reducing Cromer library opening hours by four and a half hours per week, reducing Aylsham library opening hours by five hours per week, reducing Holt library opening hours by two and a half hours per week, reducing Mundesley library opening hours by two hours per week, reducing North Walsham library opening hours by five hours per week, reducing Sheringham library opening hours by four hours per week, reducing Stalham library opening hours by two and a half hours per week and reducing Wroxham library opening hours by five hours per week.
