Lenzie Library – use it or lose it

Lenzie Library

The budget cuts proposed by East Dunbartonshire Council officials for 2010 included a recommendation to close Lenzie Library, together with three other small libraries.  An alternative, to “investigate possibility for transfer to community ownership” was also listed. However Councillors did not accept this recommendation but agreed on a cut in opening hours to save money. The opening hours at Lenzie Library are already restricted – it is not open on Saturdays, for example – so further reduction will undoubtedly reduce usage, making the case for closure next year even stronger.

Lenzie has a great wee library.  In addition to books, there are audio books, CDs and DVDs.  The library runs weekly rhymes and stories sessions for pre-school children and offers free internet access.  If you are looking for a particular book, perhaps for a school project, this can be ordered and collected from Lenzie.  You can also access the library catalogue online and order a book to collect from Lenzie.  Why not give your library a regular visit and try to maintain usage.  See ‘Links’ page for further information.  (Comments on this post have been enabled.)
