Opening hours could be reduced at libraries across the region, including the ones in Pocklington, Market Weighton and Stamford Bridge.

East Riding Council has unveiled a proposal for the future of its library service and multi service centres, and reducing opening hours at libraries is part of this plan. The proposal has been developed following detailed analysis of nearly 8,000 responses to a public consultation on the library service, which concluded last December. Subject to approval by the council’s Cabinet on Tuesday (17 May), the proposal will be the subject of a further public consultation, which will run from 25 May until 3 August.
