SIR, - When the faceless people closed the Cunningham Hill Library they deprived the young people in the district of a vital part of their education, the written word.

Books are important. You learn through stories, they fire the imagination. I for one will never understand why the library closed when there are so many schools in the area (nursery, junior and senior) to use it. So please admit the mistake of the closure and give back the library, it's not too late.

Also, what about the older people like myself who used the library on a weekly basis? Not everyone has a car and it's very hard to get a bus to the Central Library and then carry several heavy books home. It's obvious not much thought went into this closure.

After nearly two years you can still do the right thing. Don't let the building stand empty for much longer. Now is the time to put things right, we want answers not excuses.
