An Extraordinary full meeting of Essex County Council will be held on 12th March at 10am to debate the future of Essex Libraries. The Lib Dems on Essex County Council have worked with the two other opposition groups to secure this meeting.

This follows widespread opposition to the threat of closure or downgrading of the county's 74 Libraries.

Cllr Mike Mackrory, Leader of the Opposition (LD, Springfield), is proposing the motion which would rule out any closures, encourages better use of libraries as community hubs and maximises the use of library buildings and sites to generate income.
