Cllr Paul Godzik on Council proposals for school librarians

Convener of Education, Councillor Godzik has issued a statement in relation to the budget proposals on school librarians.

He said: “We’ve been listening very carefully to all the arguments on this issue.  

"We are actively looking at alternative options including ways of how we can join up public and school library services, which would retain a full time service at school libraries, but still help address the substantial financial challenge facing the Council.

"We’ve been engaging extensively with the public on all of the Council proposals and I would urge people to take part in the consultation which finishes on Friday.”
