Fears spending cuts could hit Devon Library Service.

LIBRARY users staged a protest in Honiton today (Friday) - to stave off any attempt by Devon County Council to cut funding to libraries.

Campaigners fear spending cuts could lead to a reduction in library opening times and are calling on all library users throughout Devon to stand up and fight for their local library.

Full story in next week’s Midweek Herald.

  • It would be such a shame if services at our local libraries are reduced as they are so valuable to the community. Books are so expensive and I really enjoy browsing the latest titles!
