Covingham and Liden Libraries amongst most popular Libraries in Swindon

Covingham and Liden Libraries amongst most popular Libraries in Swindon

A discussion last week with Council Officers about the future of Libraries revealed that Covingham Library was the second most popular community library in the town, while Liden Library was fourth out of nine Community Libraries.

Dale Heenan “Our local libraries were the only ones to increase the number of visits over the last 12 months, and they are now recognised as being the most well visited and most efficiently run in the town.

The increase in visits has a direct correlation to Covingham Library and Liden Library being opened on Saturday mornings which I championed last year.

Libraries are safe with the Conservatives, and local residents should not be fooled by Labour. Every Labour Councillor voted to cut Covingham and Liden Libraries in their budget proposals, which thankfully the Conservatives stopped.”
