Time to have your say… Latest consultation now available.

Consultation has begun in the latest round of swingeing cuts affecting Doncaster’s public libraries.  This time those proposed to become run by volunteers (a.k.a. Community Libraries, or ‘Run it or Lose it’ Libraries) are:- Askern, Armthorpe, Bentley, Cantley, Conisbrough, Hatfield, Tickhill and Woodlands.

The key paragraph in Mayor Ros Jones Budget proposal is this.  “This will mean a further possible 8 community managed libraries in addition to the 12 already in place across the borough. There is the potential for community managed libraries in these locations: Askern, Armthorpe, Bentley, Cantley, Conisbrough, Hatfield, Tickhill and Woodlands.”

Yes, of 24 libraries in Doncaster, the proposal is that only 4, FOUR, will be council-staffed and managed.

So – have your say NOW!!!! Print copies are available at your local library (the irony!). If you require a copy in an alternative format, please email: Doncaster Libraries Consultation.
