Libraries News Round-up: 21st December 2013

Worcester News : 20th December
Just 40p a month will meet the shortfall, says Upton Town Council
They will ask every household in Upton and six surrounding parishes to pay a monthly council tax supplement of 40p for the next five years to guarantee the library’s survival over that period. This would raise about £15,000 a year, with councillors confident the additional £10,000 savings required can be achieved by using more volunteers.
