|Mobile Library hours and routes cut but not included in survey....|
Public Libraries CLOSURE Consultation ends February 22nd !
As a consequence of Peterborough City Council’s 2013/14 budget cut backs, some say to prop up the solar and wind farm proposals. The Vivacity organisation who now control the City Libraries, are required by the Council to consult with the public on reducing opening hours at four major libraries across the city.Vivacity say they have been asked to do this in order to make budget savings for the upcoming year, and the named libraries are Peterborough Central, Werrington, Orton and Bretton Libraries. As it is Vivacity have wasted a good proportion of their past publicly funded budgets on computer systems and software that's clearly not working properly and excessive flashy printwork.
Please click on the relevant links and complete the Survey Monkey online Opening Hours Consultation surveys which set out three options for reduced opening times at each of the four libraries.You can also make any additional comments directly to your local councillor. There is after all no need to close down libraries, just cut back on interim fee earning consultants and tighten up on non-core spending. The current Vivacity Accounts show just how much is being wasted. Don't take this lying down, have a word with your councillors!
