Police Launch Investigation Into Allegations Of Misconduct
Library to stay open for another year
Champagne corks have been popping at the library whose members took out all its books in protest over plans to close it.
A month after the 'Wot No Books' campaign made news around the world, Milton Keynes Council decided last night to keep Stony Stratford's Library going for another year.
But there's going to be a review of all the new city's library services, which means it could face closure again in twelve months' time.
Jonathan Day from the Friends of Stony Stratford Library has told Heart that whilst they are celebrating now, it doesn’t mean they can completely relax:
“There’s a long road ahead. We’re hoping to get groups of people from the community; young and old, different types of people on the case consulting and planning what the library will look like in the future. Who knows what it will look like.”
But Mr Day thinks the group has successfully got their point across:
“I came in here one day when there were no books and it was busy, there were young people, old people, unemployed people and someone doing a talk. The library is becoming something bigger in the community. Its not just somewhere where you come to read a book, its not just a dusty old place.”
