A wonderful opportunity to come together and have a happy time. We would like the 4th to be a focus for more people to join the library or rejoin it if their membership has lapsed, so please tell your neighbours and friends to come along.
As you know our Library is still under threat of closure as a public library. However, after the judge’s ruling on equality, from 30th January 2012 we have a six-week opportunity to fill in the GCC Consultation Questionnaire and to make a convincing case why we need a public library in Minchinhampton. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS WILL BE EMAILED SOON.
