I am particularly disturbed to learn that Holywood Library will have its doors shut for an extra 13.5 hours after recently being refurbished. This refurbishment involved a complete redesign of the library interior and was intended by Libraries NI to "broaden its appeal to the local community". To then cut its opening hours doesn't make sense alongside the plan to reduce the opening hours of Bangor Library.
Libraries are the lifeblood of local communities helping to create informed, creative and knowledgeable communities. The public have their opportunity to make their views known until 14 November via local libraries and http://www.ni-libraries.net I would encourage people to speak out and oppose these cuts before it's too late
