Library Plans: Save Our Library Site

Outline plans for the current library site were displayed in the Salem Church Hall on Saturday 8th April.
Over 250 people viewed the display during the day and most were enthusiastic about the proposed changes to the building and the concept of keeping BOTH the library site which would include the library and community centre, and the Queens Hall as community facilities. With future expansion of the village BOTH are considered necessary.
For those who were unable to attend the display details of the proposed plans for the library site are HERE.
