Cuts proposal scrapped

WHILE welcoming the news that the proposed cuts to opening hours at Ballycastle Library have been scrapped, Ballycastle SDLP councillor Dónal Cunningham has called for improved library facilities for the town.

He said: “Ballycastle Library is an excellent example of a vibrant public library service. It is excellently managed and provides a dynamic focal point in the community assisting many people, especially the young to fulfil their potential.

“However, there are improvements which would revitalise the service enabling it to provide a modern, vibrant library service, which would offer an enhanced range of books and other services. The people of Ballycastle both deserve and need the best public facilities.”
