GCC Meeting 16/02/11

Our Library is too good to lose – books not cuts’

Welcome to the Friends of Minchinhampton Library blog

As anticipated, the Conservative majority (40:23) voted through the budget cuts.  This defines the general policy for the Library Service in Gloucestershire but now that ‘the proposals’ have become decisions more action can be taken to stand up for the libraries.

In question time at the Council Meeting, Conservative Stroud District Councillor Joe Forbes asked a very pertinent question about the ‘irrational closure’ of Minchinhampton Library.

Cllr Stan Waddington presented a 2,000+ signature petition objecting to the closure of our library to the Council on behalf of FoML.  We have received a written assurance from the Council that they will respond formally to our petition within 28 days.

So watch our website and Friends of Gloucestershire website for future developments.
