Readers get reprieve in bad weather 


Readers who did not manage to return their books to libraries last week will not be fined.

Despite the best efforts of the weather, Bolton’s libraries have remained open for much of the week as staff have struggled through the snow. However, concessions will be made to any user for whom that was not possible.

Councillor Elaine Sherrington, Executive Member for Adult and Community Services, said: “While many library staff have shown great commitment to make sure that the service has been running as normal, it would not be fair to punish people library users for not returning books, especially those who are vulnerable or live in remote areas.”
