Letter - Library closure is the end of an era

AFTER fighting to keep it open, Kettlethorpe Library is now shut and will be sorely missed.

I have been going for about 17 years and all the staff have been so helpful and friendly, in particular Jean.

They have made all feel welcome and the library has been a sociable place to go to unlike a lot of peoples misconception of libraries as being dreary and dull!

The nearest library is over three miles away, okay for me with having a car but I’m sure a lot of the elderly and mums won’t be able to get there - such a shame and the end of an era.
