The public event at Burntwood Library from 3pm to 6pm on February 27 will be a chance for people to find out more about the plans.

Cllr Gill Heath, Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet member for communities, said: “We’ve spoken to the public a great deal in recent years about how best to keep all our libraries open and relevant to the communities they serve.

“We’re looking to take the next steps in that process and I’m delighted so many people have already been to find out more and contribute their thoughts to the process.

“There are still plenty of meetings to go and I would urge people who are interested to have their say in person or in writing.”

People can also find out more about the proposals online.

    Why not just vote Labour and get austerity reversed? I just love this ‘consultation’ joke, where they say that due to cuts we will have to botch up some last ditch compromise, while no doubt laughing their socks off at the gullible masses (Ben Bradley style) who don’t turn round and say ‘It’s you fault in the first place, Conservatives’. [Of course, that’s when they trot out the big lie, even admitted to by George Osborne last year, that Labour bankrupted the nation in 2008.]
