Save our libraries



Ynys Môn Council is currently carrying out a consultation on the future of the library services on the island.

I hope you will take part by visiting your  local library or the Councils website - Anglesey Library Survey - you have till 4 March 2013 to do so.

I think libraries are an essential community facility and more should be made of them, so the aim should be longer opening hours and  greater use of the space.

Yes, I'd be happy to see the libraries saved. But in order to make to make the necessary financial savings I'd readily agree to the immediate closing of all of the schools on Anglesey.

The books need balancing. And we need to make tough choices now.

Just as DVDs, Sky Movies and TV on demand are killing the small cinemas, so Kindle and the internet is killing libraries.

And them Kindle HDs are well wicked. Especially once you learn how to install a secondary browser to allow flashplayers.
