Oliver Letwin and Julian Fellowes back plan to save Dorset libraries (UK)

THE campaign to save Dorset's threatened libraries has been backed by two high profile local Tories. Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, a Conservative peer, has given his support to the Ad Lib (Association of Friends of Dorset Libraries) campaign. West Dorset MP Oliver Letwin, a member of the coalition Cabinet, has also backed opposition to Dorset County Council proposals to withdraw funding to ten libraries. The council is just weeks away from making a decision on the future of the library service in Dorset as it seeks to achieve savings of £800,000. The option preferred by council officers would see ten of the county's 34 libraries lose funding and face the threat of closure
