There are plans to introduce on a large scale volunteers to work in Skegness Library and other libraries in Lincolnshire. These volunteers are not to enhance the service as many people suggest but will take over from paid staff when they leave or are made redundant. Other steps being considered are, moving the Spilby library into the Co OP and moving Coningsby library into a farmacy.
The Library is far more than a book lending Service, Skegness Library has a large book club, a Local history group, a Knit and natter group, a junior reading group. It is used by the unemployed to seek work, it's a means of keeping in touch with friends and family for those without computers. It holds local newspapers going back a hundred years and it is a very usefull place to do reasearch. It is also somewhere to send a fax from or get photocopies.
A group has been set up calling themselves the friends of Lincoln Libraries and it will be this group who will challenge the changes. If you wish to know how to join please pm me
