Lib-Dems fight for temporary library in Market
The joint Conservative-Labour decision to just close the main library for three years without any town centre alternative is not acceptable. The local libraries simply cannot cope - least of all the already-cramped Churchtown library.
We have launched a public petition and hundreds of people have signed it within a few days as campaigners stood outside the library seeking backing for our "Library in the Market" solution.
Our scheme would be a "win,win" solution. It would provide a convenient town-centre library plus be a boost for the stallholders in the market because there are are several hundred thousand visits to the central library every year - a surge of people popping into the building which must be good for business.
