Council u-turn will see all libraries in Northamptonshire saved from closure (UK)
All of the eight libraries in Northamptonshire that were destined to be closed as part of the county council's £73 million budget saving cuts are expected to be saved from the chop. Just after 10am on Tuesday morning, the authority published details of new plans for its budget which have been drawn up in response to public feedback for the original plans. They said the council would reduce the libraries savings proposal by £147,000, with the result being "that no library will close at this point".
