Cllr Sara Duncan said: “I am dismayed that Belvoir has been earmarked for closure. This library is a vital resource for the local community and it will not be easy for people to get other libraries.
“I took part in a rally to protest against the proposed closure as the community will be adversely affected by this decision. Libraries such as this one do not just act as a place for borrowing books but they are often a focal point for the local community and a meeting place for groups to learn new skills.
“I would urge them to reconsider their decision for the sake of the local community.”
