The future of Shirley Library and possible closure

The SPRA executive committee, after a vigorous and wide-ranging debate at its February meeting, decided:

  • As an organisation, SPRA does not intend to express a view about the proposals, on the grounds that there is a variety of strong and valid arguments for and against closure.
  • SPRA strongly encourages its members to participate fully in the consultation.
  • SPRA will act as a facilitator for networking as required amongst those wishing to work together on this issue.
