Hawkhurst library tells council it wants books instead of computers (UK)

We want books in our library, not computers, was the message from Hawkhurst to Kent County Council. As part of Kent County Council's moves to make £1 million savings in library services, each facility in the Tunbridge Wells borough is being reviewed. Hawkhurst Parish Council has demanded to know what it could mean for the village library, in Rye Road. Parish councillor Margaret Brinsley, who met the council working party looking into libraries, said proposals to increase the number of computers did not make financial sense, and would have a serious impact on the number of books which could be stored there
