Plans for Norfolk library shake-up

LIBRARY services across Norfolk are being reviewed in a bid to keep the county’s branches open.

Under the proposed shake-up, library users across Norfolk will have less time to browse for books as part of plans for a 10pc cut in opening hours.

But the move is designed to ensure that all of the county’s 47 branches can remain open.

Despite a �155m funding black hole in the next three years in the wake of cuts in government spending, Norfolk County Council previously pledged to keep all of the county’s libraries open.
