Common Sense in Kirklees

Common sense has prevailed in Kirklees, where a consultation has showed little support for a council-driven proposal  that eight village libraries become volunteer-run.

There is, however, considerable interest in the idea of communities supporting their library through `Friends` groups, and new groups are being set up in Golcar, Marsden and Slaithwaite.

Councillors are also considering a number of other suggestions from the public, such as Sunday opening, the provision of refreshments and in one case, a possible change of location.
