As you will know after a spirited campaign by residents and Councillors over the summer last year the Mayor deferred his library proposals (which included 17 closures) whilst he reconsidered. There are due to be a series of meetings over the next few months between the Council, Councillors and local communities to discuss the future of the library service.

There are two sets of meetings here in the North of the City in March.

  • The first are at the Greenway Centre, Doncaster Road, Bristol BS10 5PY relating to the Southmead, Westbury, Henleaze, Horfield and Lockleaze libraries. They will be held on Wednesday 6th March 10am to 12pm and 9th March 10am to 12pm.
  • The ones relating to Shirehampton, Avonmouth, Henbury & Sea Mills are to be held on Monday 11 March 7pm to 9pm or Wednesday 13 March 10am to 12pm at Shirehampton Public Hall, Station Road, Bristol BS11 9TX.

You do need to book in though if you wish to attend which you can do so by clicking HERE. There will be an online consultation form for those who do not attend the meeting.
