Gloucestershire County Council reveals new library plan (UK)

Revised plans to save £1.8m from library services in Gloucestershire have been unveiled. The county council's previous plan to stop funding 10 libraries was reversed after it was judged unlawful at the High Court. Now, it proposes to end funding for seven libraries but continue to staff and run Matson and Tuffley libraries in Gloucester and Hesters Way, Cheltenham. A six week consultation is due to begin on 30 January. The draft strategy involves "a network" of nine main libraries being open six days a week, and 12 local libraries open five days a week
