Current Consultations

Have your say on our proposed new Library Service

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council provides 13 public libraries across the borough along with a mobile library service. It also provides information services covering many things including getting help and advice about your benefits.

The council needs to find a further £25.6million of cuts by 2020, £400,000 of which is proposed to come from Library and Customer Engagement Services.

Our proposals would retain the current library offer in 13 locations, but in order to keep these open, we believe we need to change opening hours in some, modernise some libraries with self-service machines, relocate two libraries and encourage volunteers to help out.

There would be changes to opening hours in some libraries. Our proposals mean that more libraries would have customer information and access to services in the future.

We are proposing to stop the mobile library service. We will work closely with its users to ensure that they can gain access to our library service.
