Eight library assistants may be made redundant as part of an overhaul to how community services are run in North Somerset.
North Somerset Council reviewed its libraries and children’s centres at the end of last year to try to save £500,000 by 2019.
The council hoped to make as few redundancies as possible, but it has decided it may have remove eight library posts.
These include making five library supervisors and three lead librarian assistants redundant if they cannot be found jobs elsewhere in the council.
A decision is not likely to be made until after May 16.
