Silsden library will close at the end of this month and will not reopen until the summer

The shock news was revealed this week despite efforts by townspeople to take over the library from Bradford Council.

So after all the effort put in to keep the library open Bradford have conspired to close it from the 1st April until the summer.

You could well come to the conclusion (with the other things going on with the Town Hall) that Bradford would like to close the Town Hall and the library and sell it off.

I wonder what we DO actually get for the council tax we pay.

Another Silsden asset being taken away.
Where is Mallinson?
Why isn't he doing his usual and shouting out about it?

I think you have misread the article:
news.silsden.net/news/silsden-library-will-close-at-the-end-of-this-month

It will be reopening after training volunteer staff to run the library (in the summer). But, the point is there was no need to close it because the volunteers were in place but the training didn't happen because of delays in holding meetings, due to some councillors attending out of ward meetings when the meetings were scheduled for the library, this delayed a decision on the library for about a month. The Silsden library staff provided by Bradford were reallocated, so there isn't anyone to run the library after 1 April, and Bradford are not helping! It's almost like they want the library to close?

disgusting, how much would it have cost to just keep it open with paid staff until volunteers are trained presume non of our councillors have fought very hard over this.

This isn't true, Adrian Naylor has put a lot of time and effort into getting the library up and running with volunteers, but I can't say the same about the other two ward councillors.

Peter, NO I didn't misread the article!
The library is to close, even if it is not for long it is still being taken away from Silsden.
There was no mention of Mallinson having done anything to help keep it open, only Councillor Naylor.
And I asked why Mallinson is not shouting about about this in the papers like he usually does.
So where do you think I misread it?

ok, back to the subject, what positive actions are you 'Grandad' doing about the Library's closure ? (positive answers only, lets see if you 'Grandad' can give a response with blaming Mr. Mallinson for all failings within Silsden )
