'MERRY HELL' IF KENT LIBRARY SERVICES REDUCED

The Independent writes (p4) on the outcry over the threat posed by planned local government reorganisation to Maidstone's central lending library.

The Kent library houses 300,000 items, including one of the south's best collections of non-fiction and academic works, and one of Britain's biggest collections of music scores, housed in an 11-storey tower.

Yinnon Ezra, director of Kent CC's arts and libraries department, said that if people walked into the central library - a two-story dodecahedron of steel and glass - and they did not receive the same level of service, there would be 'merry hell', reports The Independent.

Kent CC staff believe that cuts would lead to fewer new purchases and jobs could also be under threat with the proposed local government changes.
