Family historians can have their say on far-reaching plans for changes to a county's library services, which will impact on heritage and local and family history services

Northamptonshire County Council is consulting on the future of its Library and Information service in a bid to make £115m savings over the next four years, which will have an impact on Northamptonshire Studies and the provision of heritage, along with its local and family history services.


The consultation, which is due to end on 13 January 2018, came as a result of a report presented to the Cabinet on 19 October 2017. The report includes three funding options for the library service; see item 6 in the report.
