Campaigners lobbied councillors before a key town hall meeting.
All 54 members Brighton and Hove City Council met last night at the Town Hall to decide what the local authority would spend in the next 12 months. Protesters waved placards and banners calling for no cuts.
Others called for the local authority to support the Labour group’s plans to find the money to keep the mobile library running. Campaigner Harry Spillman said: “I’m optimistic that the mobile library will be preserved.”
The minority Green administration approved a council tax rise of just under 2%.
