Future of Pelsall library “secure”

Local councillor Garry Perry has sought to reassure Pelsall residents about the future of the village library in the face of cuts across the borough.
The library is preparing to move to the former neighbourhood office on Norton Road next month, to make way for the new Children’s Centre that is being built on the old site.
Coun Perry said some work is needed to make the premises suitable for library use.
When asked if the library could be one of those earmarked for closure, Coun Perry said its future was “secure”.
“It is re-locating in February to the former neighbourhood office and building work will start in March,” he added.
It is thought that the council is looking to close six libraries across the borough.
A major review of library services has been ordered and locations earmarked for closure will only be decided after that.
No indication of any job losses can be given until the process is carried out, library chiefs say.
Residents will be canvassed for their views as part of the review process.

  2. Nice to see the cabinet looking after their Conservative seats…

    So, what about the consultation then? We were told all options were on the table – now that would seem not to be the case.

    It stinks.

    Of course Pelsall library is ‘safe’ – they’ll close the libraries in the poorer, Labour wards.
    Look out Blakenall, Rushall, etc, etc

    what consultation, not seen one word of it here ?

    anyone else can confirm the form of this. Based on what Bob says we should be fine but that stinks massively and should not be allowed to close any of them
