Our Library Service

2nd of May 1998

This year Hertfordshire Libraries must reduce their spending by £1.52 million. To avoid cutting opening hours of closing libraries the savings will be achieved through changes in the services provided.
The library service will continue to maintain 52 branch libraries and 10 mobile libraries throughout the county. Special services to the housebound and those with impaired hearing or sight will continue. The collections of music recordings and videos will be maintained as will access to specialist reference and information services.
• you will only receive one reminder for any item kept overdue and will be charged SOp for every reminder sent to you;
• There will be a delay filling posts which become vacant in the library service, which may lead to longer queues at busy times;
• Adult fiction will only be bought in paperback;
• Fewer copies of recreational and “lifestyle” non-fiction titles will be bought;
• the selection of newspapers and magazines will be reduced.
The staff and members of the Library User Panels at Bovingdon and Kings Langley libraries will discuss any questions or concerns you have and there are also comment cards you can fill in.
