Library comes off hit list

The immediate future of Conisbrough Library has been secured – after it was taken off a Doncaster Council hit-list of libraries that were set for the axe.

The library was originally one of 14 earmarked for closure across the borough.

But a council spokesman confirmed that Mayor Peter Davies has now taken the facility off the list.

In addition, the council decided last week to use cash reserves to fund the library service for up to a further 12 months – also securing the safety of Denaby Main library for another year.

A consultation is now due to take place to discuss future options for the libraries.
