521 libraries (460 buildings and 61 mobiles) currently under threat or recently closed (List below) out of 4517 in the UK (CILIP figures)

Northern Ireland – plus 10 – 20 to close (previously listed as 10), 15 to 25% cut in opening hours, bookfund cut, recruitment freeze, removal of capital budget.
Oxfordshire – 20 closures apparently confirmed but Leader says “”This isn’t the end of the story, we have to listen to people who use our services, take on board their views and that will influence the way in which the cuts are delivered.”
Sefton – opening hours under threat
Somerset – 11 libraries confirmed to close (already counted)
Summary
Library users and campaigners (there does not appear to be that much of a difference nowadays) will be unhappy with the confirmed cuts in Somerset and Gloucestershire.  They’re not going to be delighted in Oxfordshire either but at least there closures appear to be subject to a review during the Summer.  Northern Ireland seems to be building up to a crisis (first 10 under threat, now 20, rumours even of 30 plus other cuts).  Bromley has announced 8 under threat and news from Carmarthenshire suggests very signiificant cuts are still on the table. There’s great news from Slough, though, showing there is an alternate path.

Councillors given veto over executive pay – Telegraph – “The threatened cuts, such as the proposed closure of many libraries, cuts to social care and a refusal to fill in potholes, are proving politically damaging for the Coalition, with the Government bearing the brunt of the public’s anger”
