Friends of Stirchley Library (FoSL) will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Saturday 13th April.

The AGM will be held between 2pm-4pm in Stirchley Community Church, and the committee have said it is open to all. At the meeting, FoSL committee will update attendees on the work of Friends of Stirchley Library over the last year, as well as provide information on how people can get involved if they wish.

Afterwards there will be a discussion held on Birmingham City Council’s proposed cuts to library services. Attendees from FoSL, who attended tonight’s Stirchley Forum mentioned the consultation, which is seeking views of residents. They did caution that the consultation isn’t a quick process nor is it straight forward and they will be looking at how to assist users of Stirchley Library on how to fill it in. We will provide more information when we receive it.
