I am pleased to report that following a letter to Mark Jewell, County Library Services Manager, and with the support of my local Councillor Edward Thomas, my AM Rhodri Glyn Thomas, and my MP Jonathan Edwards, the library in Llandeilo will now remain open on Saturdays!

Mark Jewell claims that, due to a "former staff member [who] resigned from her post at Llandeilo...temporary changes were to be considered to the existing advertised opening hours."  However, since they've now apparently hired somebody new, that will not happen.  Regardless of whether this is true or not, I'm just pleased that the library will remain open on Saturday mornings.  It does make me wonder though, if this was only to be a temporary change and only one that was being "considered" at that, why did the sign I saw on the door the other week not make any mention of either of those concepts and merely announce the new hours which were to have taken effect from 2nd February???  Enquiring minds want to know...

I did visit the library this morning and borrowed some books and was pleased to see that other people were there as well -- borrowing books, using the computers, reading newspapers -- although feel that an opportunity was missed to do anything to mark National Libraries Day...!
