A POOLE library will close tomorrow as essential maintenance work is carried out. 

Canford Cliffs Library, on Western Road, is due to shut temporarily.

A spokesperson for BCP Council said: “Due to essential maintenance Canford Cliffs will be closed on Friday 5 January.  

“The nearest other libraries are Branksome Library and Westbourne Library. We apologise for any inconvenience.” 

It is expected to reopen the next day on Saturday, January 6 at 9.30am.

However, future opening times for libraries across the district remain unclear following a public consultation. 

Hours are set to be slashed by an average of 10 hours a week, at each library, from April, as part of cost-cutting plans 

Expected to save £440,200, the council is expected to announce further budget cuts to save £12.6 million. 

Grass cutting, CCTV cameras, paddling pools and tip opening hours are all set to be impacted later this year, subject to the consultation's findings.
