Libraries re-write their future – South Tyneside Council
Posted on 9th March, 2019
The future of four branch libraries in South Tyneside now look much brighter following their transfer to community groups and charities.
One of the hardest hit local authorities as a result of cuts in central government funding, South Tyneside Council had to look at new ways of delivering services for residents.
Rather than simply closedown branch libraries, it asked for the support of its local communities. All four branch libraries have now been safeguarded with community groups or charities taking over the running of them.
