Protect our Library

20 09 2011

SDLP Dónal Cunningham has expressed deep concern about proposal from Libraries NI which suggests a reduction in opening hours for Ballycastle Library.

 Reacting to proposals in a public consultation document which could see opening hours at Ballycastle Library cut from 44 hours per week down to 30. Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham said “Whilst welcoming the fact that closure has been ruled out, I have fears that a reduction in the opening hours will see an eventual deterioration in the service”

“Libraries are a vital part of our public services; I am concerned that vulnerable sections of our community will not be able to access their local library. Libraries like local post offices provide a valuable resource to local communities and should be protected”
