We are appalled that anyone could even think of closing our beautiful library. This will rip the heart out of our wonderful community.
As we are sure you are aware, this is a well loved and much used library servicing a large area and population of all ages. A wonderful place of information for all – not just a library but a communal facility belonging to our little town of Bawtry – a coming together of people and information. It’s a crime that this facility could even be considered for closure. Alternative libraries would be Tickhill, which isn’t on a bus route and Doncaster, which is 10 miles away.
If libraries close they have gone forever and all those beautiful books! Damage that can never be repaired.
We need improvements to the existing service not the facility to be done away with altogether. What about the kids in the area – the library belongs to them as well. We need more education within our area not less. If education is expensive, try ignorance.
Where has the consultation been? We are regular users of the library and nobody has consulted us.
Regarding running costs, we do believe the running and the manning of the library could be done on a voluntary basis; we would be more than happy to offer any assistance and I’m sure there are many like us.
We are hoping that you will give your whole hearted support to saving our wonderful library.
Maggie and Glyn Morgan
