Wigan Council has vowed to keep its library book home delivery service going despite having to slash budgets. But as the system undergoes a revamp there will be a lull in activities and there will be a greater need for volunteers, an appeal for whom has been made.
The authority has prided itself in not shutting borough libraries despite the cuts and has done this by reducing hours, pooling the service with other facilities and deploying a large volunteer workforce.
The new service will move towards a volunteer-led model and will be built around individual customers.
