Hampshire council leader reverses plans to axe tips

Have your say

LIBRARIES across the area are due to have restricted service next month.

Hampshire Library service is upgrading its systems, with the restrictions running from closing time January 25 to 30.

All libraries will still be open. Visitors can still borrow books, use wi-fi, access the internet, attend story and rhyme time and other events.

But readers will not be able to check their loans or any information stored on their library card, pay any fines or hire charges, access the online catalogue, make a reservation or borrow an e-book.

Councillor Keith Chapman has apologised for any inconvenience.
