Charities interested in funding library services

Tue, 20 Mar 2012

The Chief Minister says a charity could be set up to help continue library services.

Allan Bell says two charitable organisations have shown an interest in helping to continue the Family Library and Mobile Library.

The Department of Education and Children is also looking into setting up a charity to fund library services.

It was announced last month that the DEC's funding will be cut for both services later this year.

A working group is looking to find alternative ways to keep the services running.
