Quote on proposed library closures

Commenting on the proposed library closures in Lenzie and Westerton, Jo Swinson MP said:

"Libraries are an important part of the communities they serve, and it is understandable that residents in Lenzie and Westerton are concerned about the proposed closures.

“The Scottish Government’s funding decisions have left East Dunbartonshire Council with multi-million pound black hole in the budget, so the board of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust continues to face difficult decisions to balance its books and deliver quality services on behalf of the Council.

“Nonetheless, residents deserve a full explanation for any potential library closures, and I hope that East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust will take on board and respond to the concerns of local residents and library professionals.”
