Things are hotting up in Darlington. The local press reports that a town centre library is up for a change to become a community centre or be sold for redevelopment.

Local campaigners have made a series of videos about their both Crown Street library and one  on the Mobile Library which came under threat from council cuts, & was then removed from service, leading to a documented decline in library usage revealed by FOI.

And finally Jenny Chapman, the local MP who was re-elected on June 8th has  threatened to chain herself to the railings to stop Darlington’s Crown Street library building being sold off – but is seemingly not doing it to save the building as a library.
