Mobile libraries for the chop!

by Christine Headley on 20 December, 2010

Gloucestershire County Council proposes to cut all its mobile libraries. In the Rodborough county division, Amberley receives one visit a fortnight (a quarter of an hour at the War Memorial), in North Woodchester it stops in two places for twenty minutes each, and Kings Stanley is on two rounds, so receives weekly visits adding up to an hour a fortnight. Half the stops are by sheltered housing and/or pensioners’ bungalows, so are tailormade for the least mobile, who can ask someone to nip out for a book if they can’t get out themselves.
