Birmingham Library cuts

WGGB in the West Midlands joined library staff, visitors and campaigners in condemning cuts to the Library of Birmingham, which opened in 2013.

The plans, announced by Birmingham City Council at the end of 2014, meant the loss of around 100 staff, and opening hours being slashed.
