Minet Library to remain open: Minet Library definitely NOT closing

Instead of closing the facility the Council is looking at ways to improve and expand the services offered by this much loved and much used local library.

Over the next few months we will be looking into how we can modernise the current building to make it better for users or even whether its possible to build a new library on the existing site. Before the council decides what to do we will be asking local people what they want from the service.

Labour Councillors will make sure that our area gets its fair share of council investment.

Vassall Ward Councillor Kingsley Abrams said “reports of the Minet’s closure are political mischief making by our opponents. My colleagues and I are committed to expanding library services across the borough, the Labour Council will not close the Minet Library.”
