Newcastle Libraries Are Saved From The Axe

Posted at 11:03AM Monday 24 Mar 2014

Fenham Library is one of 10 centres that were put at risk by budget cuts at Newcastle City Council, but it will re-open today thanks to a partnership scheme with Your Homes Newcastle.

It will be followed in the coming weeks by High Heaton, Denton Burn, Cruddas Park, which have been saved by a partnership with Newcastle College.

Newcastle College principal Carole Kitching said: "We are delighted that we have been able to work with the council to save these libraries from closure. Community groups have worked hard with us to ensure that we can offer the services that local people want.

"As a college, we are passionate about promoting literacy and a love of learning. "

The partnership with the city council will see the college and council library staff working side by side, to secure the future of these wonderful facilities."
