We oppose the proposals to reduce the hours of opening at Rhiwbina Library

We, the undersigned, are supporters of Rhiwbina Library, and the excellent staff who look after the library and assist visitors to the branch. The library is one of the busiest libraries in the City and is a much loved resource in Rhiwbina. Any reduction in the hours would be detrimental to the library and the community and we call on the Council to reject this budget saving.

  • Marilyn Hendricksen Rhiwbina Library provides an excellent environment and first class service. The council needs to rethink it misguided strategy.

  • Carolynne Terrett I have regularly used Rhiwbina Library for over 63 years and usually go there once a fortnight. Over the years I have also introduced my son to the benefits of using a library and have, myself, attended various classes held in their meeting room. If one is not a driver, how on earth are people from Rhiwbina supposed to get to a new "hub" library in Llandaff North? It would take two bus journeys to get there and two journeys back to Rhiwbina taking, probably, at least a couple of hours. All this at a time when the bus frequency has been reduced, not to mention whether they run on time or turn up at all! It has been proved that Rhiwbina Library has the greatest footfall of all libraries except Central so where is the Council's sense in this?! PLEASE KEEP RHIWBINA LIBRARY OPEN.

  • Rex Hendricksen Its an essential part of Rhiwbina and has provided excellent service for many,many years
