Closures On Hold

Mayor cancels closures - June 19th 2018

At a meeting in Wick Road library, the Mayor announced that plans to close 17 of the city's libraries in order to save £1.4 million would be put on hold until at least April 2020. 

He also stated “Next week a cabinet report will be published setting out plans for how my administration can invest to keep every single library in Bristol open." 

This was at least partly in response to the protests raised over the initial proposals, which would have seen almost two thirds of the libraries closed.
