|Who can get involved?||Telford & Wrekin Council and all users of neighbourhood libraries across the Borough|
|Start date||January 2012|
|Closing date||February 2012|
|Service delivery area||Customers & People Services|
|Reason for consultation||Telford & Wrekin Council faces its most difficult financial situation ever, due to unprecedented cuts in Government grants which mean a budget saving of £40m by 2014.|
In providing a fair, equal and affordable service right across the borough we are proposing that opening hours at neighbourhood libraries in
are all reduced to 16 hours per week;
Great Dawley Parish Council has now offered funding to help maintain opening hours at Dawley library (where open hours would have also been reduced) at it's present 21 hours a week.
The Council's main libraries at Madeley and Wellington will increase their opening hours slightly and those at Newport will reduce a little.
The main Telford Library will move to a new temporary location later this year as part of the Southwater redevelopment before moving into new premises in the Community Hub building in 2014.

|What happens next?||We will consider the feedback and be including it in our plans for service redesign for the new service which will be personalised, increase choice and control and promote personal budgets.|
