It is good to see that after all the fuss there are now many community led library branches either open or about to open. Churchdown, Painswick and Mitcheldean are just a few. The Mitcheldean Library Action Group has now set up the new GL17 Community Hub to take on responsibility for the centre and is determined services will not be hit.
There has been a very vindictive and politically led campaign by the self styled “Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries”, that does them no credit at all. In particular on the tig site some of their comments have been particularly offensive. Continued denigrating comments about individual councillors seem to be their forte, and denigrating the wonderful volunteers who are giving their own time for the community also attract their bile.
It is past time these “protesters” started to look at the real world. The council does not have an unlimited pot of money and libraries simply must take their share of the cuts that are affecting everything in this terrible recession.
