Since the last Broomhill Forum meeting, the Council's report on the future of Sheffield's Library Services has been published and it will come as no surprise to learn that the future for Broomhill Library is bleak. We are not one of the 11 'hub' libraries that are proposed, nor is Broomhill considered to be eligible as one of 5 co-delivered Community Libraries, for which the Council will initially fund running, but not staff costs
Walkley, Stannington, Upperthorpe and Totley will also probably close, so the only libraries that will remain open on this side of town will be Hillsborough and Ecclesall and of course, the Central Library. The Mobile Library Service will also close, but the Home Library Service will remain for those who cannot get out.
We have therefore agreed to hold a PUBLIC MEETING at 10.30am on Saturday 9th November at The Beacon Methodist Church, Fulwood Road, Broomhill, to discuss the future of Broomhill Library and give local residents and our neighbours the chance to have their say.
Please publicise this meeting and come along.
