Special Scrutiny “Call In” Meeting on the Bury Libraries Report

Update from Iain

Further to our previous blogs on this subject – many of you will be interested to know that the Libraries report which has suggested that Tottington Library and 9 others in the Borough are to close has been “Called In” for review by the Council’s Scrutiny Committee Chairman Cllr Bob Caserta.

Whilst we were assured last week that the Council will help us to take over the running of the library through the Friends of Tottington Library, this meeting and the decisions it takes could have an impact on how long the Council will give the group to become ready to run the building.

If you are interested in attend the meeting, which will be looking at all the libraries threatened with closure in Bury, it is taking place at Bury Town Hall, Knowsley Street, Bury at 7pm on Tuesday 18th July.
