Library campaigners arrange public meeting

A public meeting will be held in early March to discuss the future of library services in Welshpool

Campaigners fighting hard to save the town’s library are incensed at what they believe to have been a behind-doors decision to downgrade the service and squeeze it in with Powysland Museum.

They intend to fight on despite Powys County Council all but rubber stamping the move which allows them to sell off their ageing Neuadd Maldwyn building and move staff into the library building.

However, with 4,000 people signing a petition, campaigners hope that the public meeting will show the groundswell of support for the library to remain as it is.

“The Save Welshpool Library Facebook Group is holding an open public meeting to discuss the proposal to move the Library into the Museum and to plan a suitable response to the County Council in an effort to persuade them to change their minds,” the group told us.

“We have invited Cllr Rachel Powell, Portfolio Holder for Young People & Culture, to attend. All are welcome."

The meeting will be held in the Town Hall’s Corn Exchange from 7.30pm on Thursday, March 7.
