Slough libraries are now operating on a newly revised opening schedule.

Under the new schedule, a minimum of one library will be open every Saturday.

In February Slough Borough Council agree to make changes to the schedule to make savings and streamline the service offered.

Since April 1, The Curve, Langley, Britwell and Cippenham are predominantly running as self-service.

Library hours have also been amended, while the publications budget of £90,000 has been maintained.

Liz McMillan, locality hubs and library services manager said: “The new times enable us to continue operating at all four libraries and keep some of the main activities going.

“Having at least one library open each Saturday enables families or individuals to come when they may otherwise be unable to during the week.

"We hope people soon get used to the new hours and continue to enjoy reading and exploring other services available at the libraries."

The new library opening hours are as follows:

The Curve (library staff and self-service)

Monday 9am-5pm  

Tuesday 10am-6pm

Wednesday - Friday 9am-5pm
