THIS is just to advise you that the petitions signed by yourselves have been collected and personally handed in to the Consultation, Corporate and Customer Services, Vale of Glamorgan Council, Barry on December 12, 2013.

There were 1855 signatures with many views and opinions that I hope will be taken on board by the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

As a further bit of information: The site for the library was given to the people of Penarth by The Right Honourable Lord Windsor in 1904 and Andrew Carnegie provided £4,000 for its erection.

Also, on December 3, 2013, a Written Statement by John Griffiths was issued regarding Public Libraries in Wales. His first paragraph echoes my own views. His last paragraph shows his intention to ensure that people all over Wales benefit from a strong, resilient library service, responsive to public need, well managed, demonstrating financial efficiency and professionally run. The people of Wales fought hard to establish a free library service; we must ensure that those values continue to underpin the library service of the future. Can we rest assured that our library will, therefore, be safe?
