Campaigners in Dorset are warning that nine of the county’s libraries could close unless sufficient numbers of volunteers can be found to run them. In July, the county council voted to withdraw funding from the libraries to save £800,000 a year by 2012.
While campaigners say there has been “initial enthusiasm”, they fear it may not be sustainable. The council says discussions are under way with community groups about keeping the sites open.
