Bid to stem library visitor fall in Cumbria

Cumbria residents have been invited to attend a number of events to give their views on a shake-up of local libraries.

The county council has pledged to maintain its £6m spending on the service, and the review is aimed at stemming a 20% drop in visitor numbers.

It said it wanted to focus on providing the right services in the right places, rather than simply on buildings and opening hours.

A series of public events will be held at some of the 48 libraries in June.

The staffed session would give residents an opportunity to find out more about the proposals, ask questions, and present their ideas.
