The IMPACT trade union claims the proposals to amalgamate will lead to the closure of some rural libraries.

“This proposal if allowed to go through will destroy the excellent service currently provided by staff in the four libraries in the midlands. It will undoubtedly lead to the closure of some smaller libraries in outlying rural areas and will deny communities of a service they have paid for and ejoyed for decaded,” Asst General Secretary, Denis Rohan, said.

He said no consultation had taken place with the Trade Union.
