Northern Scot : 10th September
Council to press ahead with controversial library closures across area
Moray Councillors are set to do a partial u-turn on the proposed closure of community libraries. A special meeting of the full council is due to debate this morning plans to close seven libraries. http://www.northern-scot.co.
“I can categorically rule out closing any libraries. We will also look pull out of the contract with John Laing [which has an agreement to run libraries for the council]. I want to see the libraries back initially under the arm of the council and then we want to see a model where local communities, if they want to, can take control and run their libraries.”
