News: we need your help, take part in Kirklees’ libraries consultation
Kirklees wants to hear our views, about how our library should be run in future. They are being forced to cut the Library Service budget from £4.1m a year to £2.2m – a 46% cut.
It means Kirklees is likely to close a number of its 24 libraries. The threat we face in Denby Dale is that Kirklees may withdraw its support. We may lose their professional staff, the free-to-use PCs and wi-fi, the book purchasing, rotation and reserving.
Please complete Kirklees’ survey questionnaire. By taking 15 minutes to fill it in you can help send a clear signal of how much our village values our library, and make clear your views about which library services you think are most important to retain.
Please note that the views expressed in both the above DDCL publications are those of DDCL trustees only and not Kirklees Library Service, who need to remain impartial throughout the consultation.
