Cornwall's libraries will be closed another day a week.

It is as the council tries to save £400,000.

Cornwall Council cabinet member for shared services Adam Paynter said: "As part of the budget process and requirement to save £1.3m from our 'customer access' services, members made the decision to save £400,000 from the library and one stop shop service by reducing opening hours.
 
"We came up with a proposal of reduced hours which we then talked through with local members, staff, unions and partners. We have listened to their comments and amended the plans where possible to minimise the disruption to the local community whilst still making the savings. We are now able to publish the final agreed revised opening times which will be introduced from 01 June 2014 ensuring plenty of notice for customers and partners who also use the buildings.
 
"Of course it is not ideal that the Council has had to cut opening hours at libraries and one stop shops but it has been necessary to meet our reducing budgets whilst allowing us to keep all sites open rather than closing some of them."
 
Work will also continue to look at the possibility of amalgamating stand-alone one stop shops and libraries.
