Budget cuts hit 'lifeline' mobile library service (UK)

Two mobile libraries which serve residents in rural areas are being axed as part of an ongoing programme of council cuts. Cheshire East Council wants to slash its library provision to rural communities in a bid to save around £95,000-a-year. Currently, the authority's three mobile libraries make 254 stops at 130 communities and call at each stop fortnightly. The vans also deliver books to pre-school nurseries and elderly care homes
