  1. Hi All
    Holbeck Library
    Guess that the council have to save money and some of us think that to keep a library in Holbeck is essential. A possible avenue to go down would be to move the library into St Matthews Community Centre to be open and operated by trained volunteers . This is not a pipe dream but can be achieved . Looking to start up a campaign to keep the library . Any help would be appreciated.

    1. Dennis,

      Your idea is a positive suggestion.

      Some questions that come to mind:

      Where will you get the ‘trained’ volunteers? The facility would need to better than that provided by a mobile library. What sort of help are you looking for to help in your campaign? When does your campaign start?
