There is now less than a month for people to have their say on the future of Lincolnshire’s libraries.

The county council, which needs to save £2million per year, is looking to reduce the number of council-staffed libraries from 47 to 15 and reduce the hours of others.

Consultation events have been held around the county and there have been more than 5,000 visits to the consultation webpages

“So far, we’ve received around 2,500 questionnaires, as well as 350 individual letters/emails,” said Coun Nick Worth, executive member for libraries.

“A range of views have been offered on the initial proposals.

“All these comments will be taken into consideration in making a final decision on how best to create a more efficient, more affordable library service that meets local needs.”

To take part in the consultation, fill in the online questionnaire, which can be found at, call the customer service team on 01522 782010 or pick up a copy at your library.

Closing date is September 30.
