WARGRAVE library is not at risk of closure fromÂ new cuts to be made by
WARGRAVE library is not at risk of closure from new cuts to be made by Wokingham Borough Council.
The council says it needs to save £20million over the next three yearsÂ due to a cut in its government grant but it says that libraries, including the one in Church Street, Wargrave, will not be affected.
In 2011 residents fought plans to privatise the library after the councilÂ announced thatÂ companies wereÂ being sought to take over the service in order to save £170,000 a year. More than 2,000 people signed a petition opposing the plans, which were later scrapped.
The council will hold drop- in sessions for residents to discuss the latest cuts, including one at the St Mary’s Church Centre in Twyford on October 17 from 7pm to 9pm.
