Local library opening times to be slashed again under new proposals

Birmingham City Council is once again reducing the budget for the cities library service, which will have an affect on local libraries.

Under the proposals Yardley Wood library would see it’s opening hours increased by one hour a week, 35 hours in total but other libraries would see theirs reduced.

Druids Heath would see it’s opening hours slashed from 24 hours per week to just 21 hours per week.

Stirchley would see it’s hours reduced from 26 hours to 21 with also a proposal of moving the library into Stirchley Baths.

Selly Oak would see it’s hours reduced from 20 hours to just 15 hours a week with the proposal of merging the library with a local charity.
