IN response to James and Bobby Purity’s letter in last week’s Journal, while I agree that Wigan Council has made stringent cuts to meet Government targets and that the libraries have been hit extremely hard, I am pleased to say that at Tyldesley Library we have made arrangements to carry on with our out-of-hours activities.

The Friends of Tyldesley Library will still be able to have talks in the library on a fortnightly basis commencing on Tuesday, September 19, the Knit and Natter group will continue to meet every Friday morning between 10am and noon and the evening reading group will be held at 5.45pm on Thursday, September 21.

These activities will carry on being run by volunteers.

Jill Davies

Chair of the Friends of Tyldesley Library
