Across Haringey the Labour-run Council are planning to cut library opening hours and staff. Labour have proposed reducing branch library opening hours down from 58 hours to 36 hours per week. The reduced opening hours will also mean that 6 members of Haringey’s library staff are due to lose their jobs.
Lib Dem opposition councillors have criticised the proposals.
The Liberal Democrats want every child in this borough to have access to books, the internet and computers to help them get the best education, so we believe library opening hours should not be reduced.
The Labour-run council could find other ways to save the money, for example they could scrap their plans to spend £33m on a new council HQ.
We the undersigned call on the Labour-run Haringey Council to reverse their proposal to cut Library opening hours and make Library staff redundant.
