That's a good point actually CotF - we do pay our taxes to Devon after all, not Dorset.

Also, nobody has mentioned the Axminster library. Is this due to be closed as well ?

Geoff,

Well I hadn't realised until yesterday that Colyton has a library. Having said that it was closed at the time but did look to be still in business!

Indeed, Colyton has a very busy library together with a range of shops covering all day to day needs. I understand that Colyton Library is due to be refurbished very soon.

Thanks Flightman,

It would appear that at the moment all is well in Devon.

We shall have to keep watching.

hi,

I have been down in Axminster shopping today and checked out the Library. It is closed on Sundays and Wednesdays with a half day on Saturday. Opening times are 09:30 with various closure times, some as late as 18:30. It closes every day for lunch.

On ITV West Country tonight is was announced that NO libraries will be closed in Devon.

So a very different story to the one in Dorset.

I do fear that the good people of Lyme are digging their own grave in demonstrating how concerned they are in keeping open their library.

In the “Big Society” they are just the kind of people the council are looking for to take over the running of the library.

A clear case of ‘Damned if you do and damned if you don't’ Sad
