Erdington Library Must Be Preserved

There is currently a service review being carried out about the Library Service in Birmingham. The review is being carried out to give Constituencies an overview of how the service in libraries across the city are being run and how they can make savings if an individual constituency decided to. In Birmingham Library Services is a devolved service, so each constituency decides the level of funding and how an individual library is operated. In Erdington Constituency, there are currently 7 Labour Councillors, 4 Conservatives and 1 Lib Dem. The Constituency is, therefore, Labour controlled and they choose how to spend the budget for local devolved services like Libraries.
