AS we all know Wirral libraries have had their opening hours drastically reduced because the council couldn’t afford to keep them open all week.

The library staff worked long and hard to stop this happening and to safeguard their jobs, as did many library members.

To my horror I have learned the libraries are now to reopen on certain days because they will be staffed by volunteers and not library staff.

I think it is disgusting of the council, who apparently couldn’t afford to keep them open.

Do these volunteers realise they are taking the jobs of library staff who worked very hard to try to keep them?

Well done to the council for again causing upset and uncertainty for library staff.

I for one will not use the library on volunteer days.
