354 libraries plus 26 mobiles currently under threat or recently closed (List below “News”)
Being the list below represents around a third of  authorities in the UK, the final figure could be from 800 to 1000.

Changes to the total
– plus one – Bury – Unsworth Library to be closed and sold
– plus two – Wakefield – at least 2 under threat (previously not counted as cuts too vague)
The impact of the heavier-than-expected cuts in urban areas is being felt with a number of media reports recently featuring reports saying that one of the ways to save money is to close libraries.  Meanwhile, several rural areas that have received better-than-expected settlements are still pushing forward with cuts, including most notably Dorset (whose income will increase .25%), Gloucestershire (-2.5%) and Oxfordshire (-1.87%).  The good-tempered Oxford Street protest at the flagship Vodafone shop will be an interesting one to watch – will the national media notice it?  Could it point the way as to how to campaign? It puts the current crisis in some relief that if Vodafone paid the £6bn taxes it owed, there would not be a need for any of the cuts in the public sector.
