    Consultation on how to implement spending reductions on Library services

    South Gloucestershire Council is currently consulting on options to save money on the libraries service.

    The proposals presented in the consultation will have an impact on the way libraries in South Gloucestershire operate.

    Please spare 5 minutes to fill in this consultation form and tell us what your local library means to you and how you prefer to use the library services in your area, we would really appreciate hearing your opinions.

    Find out more and have your say by 10 January 2024. Either online: www.southglos.gov.uk/librarysavings-consultation or pick up a printed copy from your library.
