Bollington Town Council statement on the library service

Members of Bollington Town Council have learned with alarm that Cheshire East Council may propose to consult on closing the public library in the town. The Town Council has not previously been consulted on this proposal.

The Council has in its Corporate Plan a strong commitment to work in close cooperation with the Bollington Library and its staff, for whom it expresses its strong appreciation and support.

The Town Council will vehemently oppose any proposal to close the Library and will work closely with the Friends of Bollington Library and the community at large to ensure any such proposals are defeated.

It will also cooperate with other town councils who are similarly affected. It objects in the strongest possible terms to the discrimination against smaller towns from this and other attacks on our community services.

It sees these proposals as symptomatic of a lack of appreciation for the contribution of libraries to education, learning and reading for pleasure but also Cheshire East Council seems to forget that their libraries deliver many Borough services, for instance bus passes, access to IT and also their provision under the warm spaces programme.

Bollington Town Council will engage actively with the consultation exercise, if and when it is launched.
