Members of a group formed to campaign to save Weston super Mare library are holding a public meeting on 19th March at 11 am at the Blakehay Theatre, Wadham Street, Weston super Mare.
The group are angry at North Somerset Council's plans to sell off the building and move the library service into the Town Hall. This is one of the proposals approved by North Somerset Council in order to make £47.3 million of cuts over 4 years.
Weston Library is currently housed in a building designed by renowned local architect Hans Price. There has been little investment in the building over the years, and as a result UNISON members working at the library agree that it is not fit for purpose. If the council were prepared to invest in the building it might be a different story, but as it stands they support the move to the Town Hall. The Library service is not currently under threat. It is simply the building.
