Winslow News: Library meeting draws full house

THERE was a packed house at Winslow Public Hall on Tuesday night for a public meeting of residents keen to secure a future for the town’s library.

Winslow Town Council had organised the event as a follow-up to a public meeting at the Winslow Centre in November at which Bucks County Council outlined its proposal that Winslow Library should be run as a ‘community partnership’, as part of cost-cutting measures.

Prior to Tuesday’s meeting, town council members had been on a fact-finding mission.

Town councillor Harry Chambers reported back from Little Chalfont, where villagers successfully took over the running of their library in 2007.
