Why this petition matters

Started by Ruth Molyneux

Wirral Council are in the process of setting it’s budget for 2022-2023 and must cut its spending by £27 million.
Among the proposals some Libraries across Wirral are to close, Bromborough Library is one of them. They are to be replaced by a mobile library.

PROPOSAL: Reprovision of the Library Service
This saving is associated with the development of a new operating model in libraries which will consolidate and realign the current libraries estate and resources to provide a comprehensive and efficient service for all who wish to use it. 

The new operating model will retain four central libraries and four community libraries, as well as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) only provision co-located in community assets. The home reader service will remain for residents who cannot access a traditional library, as will the council’s digital library and online offer. 

In addition, the service will invest in a Mobile Library with a 3,000-book capacity to ensure hard to reach communities have access to a library service. 

The saving will be achieved through library closures, service realignment and a staffing restructure.

Full details of the new Libraries Operating Model will be available online from 10 January.

Saving: £814k

Its my view that the closure of this community hub will be a huge loss to Bromborough and it’s surrounding communities and will be damaging to the health and well being of those who use and rely on it to stay connected with others.
