Cuts to the library services in Birmingham have resulted in reduced opening hours for Kings Heath library. From Monday 11 July 2016, the new hours will be:
- Mondays: open from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm
- Tuesdays: open from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm
- Wednesdays: closed all day
- Thursdays: closed in the morning and open from 12 noon to 7pm
- Fridays: open from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm
- Saturdays: open from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 5pm
- Sundays: closed all day
Apparently these new arrangements are temporary. There is to be a consultation ‘on a future model for the community library service’ although at present the members of the Residents’ Forum have not been told what shape this future model might take. Nor is there any indication of when the consultation will take place.
When more information is available, it will be posted on the website.
