Proposed Somerset library cuts cancelled (UK)

A series of library funding cuts in Somerset will not go ahead, councillors have decided. Somerset County Council wanted to make funding cuts but the High Court found they did not comply with equality laws. Eleven libraries will now keep their funding, four mobile libraries will be reinstated and opening hours at 23 libraries will increase. About £600,000 will be spent on self service technology at some of the county's busiest libraries - BBC
