Chew Valley Gazette : 27 February

Protesters fear that the move will see a reduction in the number of books stored at the library. However, those in North East Somerset, including Chew Valley residents, where library access is limited to mobile services or the converted telephone book exchanges, the news that the council would be putting £160,000 towards community library developments was welcomed.
