New councillors confirm that library is safe at Victoria Hall

Newly elected DCC councillors Damien Greenhaigh and Ellie Wilcox confirmed that Glossop's library will stay at Victoria Hall. " It's an exciting time for Victoria Hall and the library within!! We are very happy to reaffirm our pre-election pledge to retain and improve the library service in the Victoria Hall. We want the work that is carried out to secure the future of the library and community use of the building for another 125 years.

As part of this we are looking to enhance provision as part of the newly integrated Adult Education Centre and Library campus. We have been engaged in an listening process to access the needs of service users and those that deliver them. And for hoping to carried out a joint consultation very soon. More details to follow on this shortly".

Derbyshire County Councillors Damien Greenhaigh and Ellie Wilcox shred the controversial plans for a new library.

With Labour taking control of Derbyshire County Council, the controversial plan to demolish the old St Luke's School and build a modern library is expected to be withdrawn. The threat to the library was considered one of the major issues locally, and news that the library is safe has been welcomed by Glossopians of all political persuasions.
