Norfolk County Hall cuts: Impact on cultural services
Unlike in Suffolk, where up to two thirds of libraries are facing the axe, the county council has been at pains to point out there are no plans to shut any in Norfolk.
But that doesn't mean cultural services have been spared the axe. Over the next three years the library and information service needs to make just under �1.5m of savings.
That will see cuts in the number of staff in libraries, reductions in opening hours, changes to mobile library visits and fewer new books will be bought.
With the museum service having to find more than half a million pounds of savings between now and 2014, staff numbers will be cut, opening hours will be reduced and admission prices look set to go up.
The costumes at Carrow House in Norwich will also move to the Shirehall, with regimental displays switching to the Castle Museum.

At Norfolk Record Office the number of staff will be reduced, while arts grants will be reduced to save �170,000 over the next three years.
