Changes and reductions to Library Opening Hours

Closed 29 Apr 2011

Opened 28 Mar 2011


As part of the review of Libraries and Heritage services we are currently looking at how we can save £935,000. The Council has committed to keeping all of its main libraries open but still needs to find savings. Proposed reductions in and changes to opening hours will contribute to these savings.

The changes in opening hours will affect the Sutton, Wallington, Worcester Park, Cheam and Circle Libraries. All other libraries are not affected by these proposals.

Alterations to opening hours will be part of a number of changes to the library service that will happen over the next couple of years.  To have your say on some of the other ideas for savings please go to our online dialogue at

Why your views matter

We need to save £935,000 and this will involve making changes to the library service in Sutton. We want to know what you think about the proposed changes to the opening hours of Sutton's libraries.

What happens next

The responses to this consultation will help determine what changes are made to library opening hours.
