Bridgend libraries CF31

Location: UK » Wales » CF

Local library service, providing library services to Bridgend and surrounding areas, and heavily relied on by the elderly and children in particular in an already economically deprived area. The council proposes 20 percent cuts to the library budget. Even a lower 16 percent cut will still result in the closure of at least three libraries, the ending of a mobile PC skills unit, reductions in funds available to buy new books and reductions in opening hours.
