I am working with my local community and are looking at the library service for the future in Hay and across the county and what it will look like.
Is it possible you could provide some financial information to support our planning as there are proposed cuts in the next 2 years that will dramatically affect the service for its users

Response by Head of Service:
Thank you for your enquiry about library service financial information, and for the work that you are doing with the community in Hay, in order to support a long-term sustainable future for the library.
Please see attached the line-by-line financial information that you requested, with regard to the library service as a whole, for the years 2018/19, 19/20, and the estimate for 2020/21. The budget for the following years will be estimated as the same as 2020/21, less the savings targets for each year. As you are aware from the budget setting process for 2020/21, the library service is targeted with savings of £30,000 for next year, with more to be achieved in subsequent years of the medium term financial plan.
The council’s budget figures as a whole are of course published annually, and can be found on this link https://en.powys.gov.uk/article/7469/Council-Accounts
