Government offers County More Money for Libraries

The government has offered the County Council some extra money which they can use to save some of the twenty threatened libraries, according to today's Oxford Mail.
There is, now, some hope in this campaign.
Some people have criticized David Cameron for "nimbyism" attributing his concern for Oxfordshire's libraries to the fact that he lives in Witney. But why be ungracious if there is a ray of hope for saving this essential public service?

  1. Do you have a link for this? There was a similar story in the Independent, but I haven't yet found anything to back it up in the Oxford Mail or on the OCC website, other than the one-off Big Society fund.
